Publishing rights or copyright, which the author assigns to the publisher in the author contract. Generally, moral rights are not assigned. Specific rights can license use of the work in its original form (volume rights) or in a substantially altered form (subsidiary rights). Across these classifications, rights can also be assigned by market, territory or language. The assignment of digital rights is now an issue with the ebook revolution beginning to take off.

This definition is extracted (and expanded on) from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup.
