Because we all know that all the agencies of the US Government work together seamlessly to develop and implement policy:
FDA: Protect the children from radiation
TSA: Protecting the public from terrorists requires us to irradiate the public
FDA: Radiation is bad
TSA: Radiation is good
FDA: Too much radiation for kids is bad
TSA: Radiation is harmless
FDA: Think of the children!
TSA: The children might be terrorists

Rickrolling is the G-rated version of linking every comment to goatse.cx. Then Slashdot started putting [realdomainname.tld] after every link.
Oh those goatse.cx linkers
For all intensive purposes your saying the same thing.
Don't you mean "you're" instead of "your" ?

The problem itself is simple. One party owns the copyright in the work and the other party gets an unrestricted, irrevocable (notice I said irrevocable and not "perpetual" - although long, copyright duration is not perpetual), non-exclusive license, including the right to sublicense and make derivative works to the work without the obligation to account to the other party. You can battle about which party owns and which party is licensed but with a license this broad, it is almost the same. However, 35 years from now when an assignment may be terminated (under US law if in the US) which party is which will make a difference.
This is a situation where one or two hours of time from an IP attorney who understands copyright licensing will avoid a LOT of issues later. Don't waste time looking for a prepackaged license that you may alter in ways that have unintended consequences later. This is a one-page agreement. Hire a lawyer to draft it for you.
