What are exploitation rights?

Assignment

This is the exclusive right of the creator of a work of literature, science or art to publicly disclose and reproduce the work.

Disclosure includes broadcasting a programme, performing a play or publishing a book in print. Uploading a work on the Internet is also a form of public disclosure.

The reproduction of a work also includes translations, musical arrangements, adaptations into film or theatre versions and generally all full or partial adaptations or reproductions into an altered form that is not to be regarded as a new, original work. 

Exploitation rights can be assigned.
