The idea of bearer copyright seems attractive, especially in light of the hypothetical of the fading-storage-locker-masterpiece. As user6726 points out, one obvious way to create bearer copyright is through conveyances. However, as he also points out, there are problems with using conveyances. These problems could be avoided by putting the copyright into a ...

In the US, you can transfer copyright to another person. This can be done "by any means of conveyance" as well as by law (e.g. intestate succession). Done via a document that transfers title, the main issue is that there could be multiple documents of conveyance that say the same thing, thus there could be 12 equal owners of the copyright.

You can make a derivative work if: the original is not under copyright, you are the copyright owner, you hold a licence from the copyright owner that says you can, or your usage is fair use or fair dealing as applicable. For your proposal, the image is copyright, you don’t own it, you don’t have a licence and what you propose is neither fair use nor fair ...

Words themselves are not protected by copyright. Curated lists of words, however, are (what's protected is the artful collection of words chosen for a purpose). Hence Hasbro owns the copyright in the list of playable words, though it is a matter for future possible litigation to see if the courts agree. If you have permission from the copyright holder, ...
