[Essentials] Exclusive Rights
Having exclusive rights on a work of art is pretty much what gives it it’s value and it’s bargaining power. How many people are you aware of who would marry a man or a woman that anyone can get at any moment?, My answer would be few and far in between. It’s similar to that. Having exclusive rights ensures that your production is your production and your production only yours, unless you have given permission to someone or some entity to use it. How much more value does something have when only limited people can get it ?.
In today’s time some artists can not seem to get away from the idea of re-using the productions of others in creating their projects. It has gotten to the point where when you’ve heard one, you’ve heard them all. So, who or what is to stop or deter someone of these artists from using your work in that manner, other than having all say so, or Exclusive rights.
