Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC) launched the Permissions Acquisition Service and the Republication License, two services designed to simplify the licensing of content among rightsholders. These two services are designed to combat the problem caused by new digital formats and rights standards: the types and amount of permissions publishers need have increased and permissions acquisition has become difficult to navigate.
Users of the Permissions Acquisition Service leverage a team of rights acquisition specialists, who acquire necessary permissions for reusing or republishing in new editions, formats, or languages. The Republication License is a self-service model lets both vendors and acquirers use copyright.com to grant or acquire rights. The streamlined solutions are intended to enable publishers and buyers to manage rights more efficiently.
