Copyright Transfer 

A copyright license is written permission that serves as a notification by the creator or copyright holder to the user of the creation regarding the exercise of the rights and obligations of the activity of using a creation.

The copyright of creation is generally held exclusively by the creator as soon as the creation is realized and announced. Exclusive control of the copyright ensures that the creator can feel any benefit of the creation (in the future referred to as theAuthor). However, the Author has the right to share such exclusive control on Publica Indonesia Utama. In this case, Publica Indonesia Utama is the copyright holder as the exclusive control rights holder.

The creator is every Author of a book published in Publica Indonesia Utama.

Every book publishing issue involving Publica Indonesia Utama will be assisted in doubling, distributing, and selling books. In this case, Publica Indonesia Utama acts as a copyright holder under the CC BY-NC-SA (Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License).

The book sale proceeds are divided according to the agreement between the Author and Publica Indonesia Utama (See Royalty Policy). In the case of Publica Indonesia, Utama 'buys' the exclusive rights of the creator for several years by paying upfront (sale break) in order to get the profit of selling the book for itself as stipulated in Article 16-19,  article 29-30,  Article 76-77,  Article 98, and  Article 122 of Law No. 28 of 2014 on Copyright (UUHC 2014). 

Copyright transfer carried out by the Author concerns the transfer of economic rights only to regulate the distribution of economic benefits born of the expressive aesthetics of creation. 

The "sell break" mechanism is the process of switching copyright from the Author to the Publisher, where the Main Indonesian Public party, in this case, then acts as the copyright holder after they buy economic rights through the agreement as outlined in the transfer copyright agreement with the Author.

Unless otherwise agreed, the licensee grants Royalties to the Author or Related Rights holders for the License duration. The amount of Royalty referred to is based on the License Agreement. (Article 80 paragraph (3) and (4) UUHC)

Legal action from the transfer of copyright between the Author to the Publisher is in the form of restrictions on the actions carried out by the Author on his writing. The restrictions are based on the Author's choice as set out on our Open Access Policy page.

The copyright license cannot be used as a means to eliminate or take over all the creator's rights to his or her creation. In this case, the author also acts as the copyright holder. When he carries out the licensing of creation independently, he in no way transfers, in this case, exclusive control over his economic rights to the licensee. It only grants permission to the licensee to jointly exercise the economic rights to the creation. This licence uses to receive the economic benefits of creation equally. The Licensor retains his or her copyright exclusively while sharing the licensee's rights to use the creation.
