Copyright Clearance Center worked with USA TODAY to develop a customized Rightslink solution to meet its needs. Rightslink is designed to enable publishers to work with any printer or hosted platform, so they do not have to change their current workflow or business models.

The publishers—American Institute of Physics, Haworth Press, and Taylor & Francis—are using Rightslink to enable individuals and organizations to obtain reprints and copyright permissions online.
