LOL you're mixing two quite different concepts and treating them as if
they were one. Are you really that confused or are you intentionally
misleading people? Also: there's not need to have a double identity,
thank you.

A copyright license is something the copyright owner has that gives him
the power to define who, and in what conditions, can make copies.

A copyright holder can make a contract giving away in full or in part,
permanently or for a certain duration, his copyright powers.

In the case of books and music, most copyright holders start by the
authors who sell, under a contract, those rights to a publisher.

Then you eventually buy your copyright license by buying a legitimate
copy (a book, a CD, etc...).

You're a joke!
