Where works have been created by different co-authors, exploitation rights can only be exercised in common. The right to use a work can be transferred to another person through a license. Use rights have a different meaning for different disciplines. Important factors are: the right to presentation is the right to render the visual arts or film perceptible by technical devices to the public (s. 19, para. 4 UrhG). The work is presented to the public, who perceive the representation together through a film screening or slideshow. This definition is separate from the transfer right. The right to the presentation therefore does not include the right to make the dissemination of these works noticeable to the public. This right derives from the right to transmit shipments in . 22 UrhG together.
The right to adapt and transform under Article 23 of the UrhG is affected whenever the spiritual and aesthetic content of a work is changed and the author must consent separately. This is particularly the case with changes to works of art and the transition of works. In the performing arts, the distinction between adaptation and the freedom of interpretation of the actor, dancer or director is very problematic.

The details of the licence are generally stipulated in a contract whose conditions sometimes seek to prevent the purchaser from using the work in accordance with existing copyright exceptions. For example, the terms and conditions of many sites are often aimed at preventing your use of copyright on this site without express permission, or limiting your reuse of the material on that site to personal use.
