In Vietnam, in order to use and exploit the economic benefits of copyright and related rights, copyright owners must transfer their rights to users through contracts for the assignment of copyright or related rights or contracts for the licensing of copyright or related rights. In this article, the author will analyze the regulations of Vietnamese law on the legal basis for licensing, the regulations on contracts for the licensing of copyright or related rights, and propose some solutions to improve the law on licensing of copyright or related rights.
