Copyright Security Agreement
(Short Form)


Summary

This Copyright Security Agreement (Short Form) allows one or more grantors to convey a security interest in its copyrights to the collateral agent in a secured loan transaction. It is also used to perfect a security interest in a registered copyright via filing with the U.S. Copyright Office. This form includes practical guidance and drafting notes.The Copyright Security Agreement is used together with the main security agreement, and can be attached thereto as an exhibit. Terms of the copyright security agreement should parallel the main security agreement to avoid conflicts arising from differences in the same provisions across various loan documents. Pro-grantor options are included to allow a borrower to seek waivers from the collateral agent.
