to allocate a task to a person or send somebody to work in a particular place

COMMENT: if an author assigns the copyright in his work to someone else, usually for a fee, this means that he no longer has any interest in the work. In some cases (such as where the book sells badly) this is a better deal for the author than a normal publishing agreement, where the author licenses a publisher to publish his work against payment of a royalty. The outright purchase of a copyright was common until the 20th century, and is still practised by some publishers.
