The rightsholder needs to agree to the IUScholarWorks non-exclusive license before their items may be deposited into the repository.
If the author is not the rightsholder, they need to secure permission to deposit the item from the rightsholder. Often times, and for published materials in particular, the rightsholder is the original publisher of the item when the author transferred her/his rights in the contract with the publisher.
If you are the rightsholder making the submission on your own behalf, you will accept the license as part of the submission workflow.
