Commonly used copyright forms include assignments, licenses and the government forms required for registration.
Here's a standard copyright assignment. Such an assignment is important for situations when your business retains independent contractors to generate original subject matter, such as promotional material. Unless a written assignment is obtained, the copyright rights in such work product may belong to the independent contractor, even though your business paid for its creation.
Copyright licenses are used less frequently, but are good for situations in which royalties will be paid.
