Donating copyright

As a donor to NCACL, you are required to indicate whether you are transferring copyright with your donated gift. In the case of papers, manuscripts and artwork, it is not usual to donate copyright of these materials. For certain types of material, copyright can be an important part of the donation, for instance, a donor who is also a photographer may donate his or her copyright for the photographs taken. The National Centre is investigating when donations of copyright or licensing rights may be advantageous to both the National Centre and the donor.
