Protect your nonprofit's copyright on works produced by volunteers

If your nonprofit is using volunteers to produce content for your publications, or any other copyrightable material, you'll want to ensure that your nonprofit owns the copyright to that work. Since rules for the materials produced by volunteers aren't clearly defined, the safest legal course of action is to assume that your nonprofit won't own the copyright automatically, but must obtain it with a copyright assignment.

Nolo's Volunteer Assignment Agreement for Nonprofits comes with straightforward and clear instructions for completing it, step by step.
