What about having joint copyright on the code then? Would that work?
Not as far as I know. I think only one legal entity can have copyright,
but I'm not a lawyer.
Is it possible to assign copyright to another entity but still retain
it for yourself?
Does *joint copyright* mean that both parties have to be consulted
before any action can be taken or does it mean both can act
independent of each other, probably under some sort of agreement -
like territories or use?
You can retain copyright but grant a license to someone that allows them
to sub-license it to others. I think copyright is a red herring and you
should remain focussed on licensing.
