Assignment and licence

What happens if I don't sign a contract proposal from an publisher?

Publisher

If you don't sign a contract, no rights are assigned (in any way) and no licences are granted.
In practice, this means that in most cases a publisher will publish your article anyway. If the publisher changes its mind on the draft contract it sent you, you can at least limit the arrangements to the one publication via that one medium.
