What do you think "authorizes the making and distribution of

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.

The authors are relenquishing their rights within contractual
privity a concept which I know totally evades your understanding.
