What do you think "authorizes the making and distribution of copies"
is called in legal terms? It is called "waiving their exclusive rights".

If you mean in exactly the same sense that an author waives
his exclusive rights when he allows a publisher to print and
sell his books, fine.

Words have connotations. You are using "waive" to imply that
the copyright holders are relinquishing rights to their work.
I am using "authorize" to emphasize that they are doing no
such thing.
