Commercial Commons License

A Model Agency Agreement, which was drafted by the South African partner of OpenBusiness. It is designed to assist creators, who release work under a Creative Commons license and want to engage with a publisher or gallery (for example) in a commercial relationship. They can use the Model Agency Agreement to structure the commercial relationship. The document provides a way to by-pass the legal costs of entering a commercial relationship. In this way it very much acts like a Creative Commons license, as it provides a free tool for creators to specify their rights and demands. In that sense one can call it a Commercial Commons License.

The contract designs an agency relationship but does not constitute legal advice.
