That's true.  Most recent discussion uses the term "transfer of copyright",
which may apply to some rights only.  The point is that once transferred,
you can't get them back without the agreement of the transferree.

But no living man am I!  You look upon a woman.  Eowyn I am, Eomund's daughter.
You stand between me and my lord and kin.  Begone, if you be not deathless.
For living or dark undead, I will smite you if you touch him.
