It would be delightful if people could post sample documents for
the transfer of copyright.

Someone asked something about transfer of copyright to for-profit
companies.  The idea is that some authors may be wary of transferring
their rights to a for-profit company, even though the software has been
released under GPL.

At Nupedia (free encyclopedia using GNU FDL), we are hoping to deal
with that issue by setting up a non profit foundation, the sole job
of which is to own and defend the copyrights, i.e. to enforce the
license.
