Michael Healy, Copyright Clearance Center


Published on

Copyright Clearance Center, a Global sponsor of Publishers Launch Conferences, has been in the business of clearing rights for more than three decades. And they have also got two solutions -- a new license and a new service -- that directly address this challenge.

Michael Healy explains what CCC has to offer that can reduce the burden of getting the permissions necessary to bring to market the increasingly complex and mashed up products we will be seeing in the future.

  • We have done a lot of listening through several rounds of market research, including several sessions with our Publisher Advisory Group.What we have learned is that buyers of rights are struggling to get the rights they need. Sometimes they can clear the rights through copyright.com or RightsLink but sometimes they can’t.
  • For example, as a rights buyer, if I buy rights for reuse in a book, what does that mean? Today, that means I probably need more than print rights. I need electronic rights and the right to publish in multiple formats. And, in electronic publishing, I can’t have my rights expire in a year. I need rights for a longer-period of time or across editions. And, if I am publishing materials in the education market, I need rights to reuse content notonly in the main textbook but in the teacher’s guide and the student edition as well.
  • Republication License Avoid the costly and labor intensive nature of these transactionsIncrease revenue and streamline permission requests by making your works available to other publishers and authors through this license
