1. What is an exclusive license agreement? With an exclusive license, you retain the copyright. Your contribution is credited as the author(s) ©, but you authorize the control of all rights exclusively on SAGE or, where applicable, on a company or other proprietary publishing partner. This means that all licensing requirements, including SAGE permissions, are managed. The provider represents and warrants that as a contributor and true author of the published content, you have the right to grant these rights; the contributions are original; they do not knowingly contain false statements, infringe on a right to privacy, infringe legal or customary copyrights or infringe the rights of third parties; and that all statements contained in the articles that are alleged as facts are true and/or based on reasonable research for accuracy. Thinkific may transfer these rights to third parties in the event of a sale. Since the release of the first version in 2002, the world of information technology has changed and the FLA has been reviewed and revised by a group of international IT and IP experts, the last of which was in October 2017 to join the team behind contributoragreements.org. As a result of the discussions and revisions, the new FLA 2.0 can now be generated directly through the distributor. Alternatively, the issuer of the agreement continues to offer to create its own participation agreement, including a copyright license or a non-exclusive patent seizure option. 11.
