(a)to one or more, but not all, of the things the copyright owner has the exclusive right to do;
(b)to part, but not the whole, of the period for which the copyright is to subsist.
(3)An assignment of copyright is not effective unless it is in writing signed by or on behalf of the assignor.
(4)A licence granted by a copyright owner is binding on every successor in title to his interest in the copyright, except a purchaser in good faith for valuable consideration and without notice (actual or constructive) of the licence or a person deriving title from such a purchaser; and references in this Part to doing anything with, or without, the licence of the copyright owner shall be construed accordingly.
