Copyright License Agreement Format - Suggestions Required
I am Android Application Developer.
I developed an app which include "Ashottara- 108 names of Deity".
Among several ashtottara, one ashtottara respective to lord nandi was written by Somesh(Name changed) who is still alive.
His Work(Ashtottara of Nandi) is yet not Copyright registered.
I want to take his permission orally, to publish said ashottara in my Android App.
Also I want take his written permission for the same. So I drafted Copyright License Agreement which is provided below. Please check the format and suggest me if any changes required.
-------Format Starts from here--------
