- Publishing, distribution and promotion. Yo can allow other people to publish, distribute and promote your work or reserve all rights. For example, if you wrote about your town, you might have a special interest on reaching the highest number of readers. Allowing others to use this right will help this purpose.
- Commercial use. You can allow or restrict the commercial use of your work. Imagine you publish a comic for children and wish to allow schools to sell it in order to rise funds for after-class activities. A commercial use license should be signed.
- Derivative work. You should define whether others are allowed to use and modify your book, creating derivative works. Transferring this right helps to expand knowledge and to complete publications.
- Attribution. Decide if your authorship has to be mentioned every time people use your work. At Spain this right is always kept by the author.
