Positive Negative

Yes, this is an author's right recognized by most legislations, though it is important that the author is aware that the modification of a license will be effective for those who use the creation after that change takes place, not affecting this change to those who might have acquired or used the work under prior conditions.

It is important, to guarantee legal safeguards, that those authors modifying the conditions in which they make the work available, clearly notify that the license has changed to avoid this way any mistake with those who might have used the work previously.
