I'm not saying the originating region matters; I'm saying that a copyright
assignment clause might be valid in some regions. The only reason a
particular region might matter is if there's a choice of law clause,
which I suppose might render such a clause always invalid.
(I'd be cautious about that, too--any "this clause is non-free but unenforcable
so let's ignore it" reasoning should be taken very carefully, and with the
understanding that it may be ignoring the wishes of the author.)
