: HI,I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR THE MEANING OF'WORK WILL REVERT'.PLEASE HELP ME.

Can I take a guess that this is in relation to a publishing contract? "Work will revert" to the author (or artist) is a common contract phrase meaning rights to the work will return to the former owner or to the former owner's heirs within a certain period of time. After that time has passed, the owner is free to republish the work.
