Copyright Clearance Center Launches Ozmo

Nov 21, 2008

Copyright Clearance Center, a provider of copyright licensing solutions, announced the beta launch of Ozmo, a web-based service that allows independent content creators to license the use of their work for commercial purposes. Ozmo allows artists and writers to select their license terms and set the price for the use of their content. CCC handles the licensing process and all payments go through Amazon’s Flexible Payment Service when a license is purchased. Content creators can license as much content as they want. Payment is collected from the buyer when the rights are purchased. Ozmo supports the Creative Commons CC+ protocol for bridging the gap between commercial and non‐commercial licensing. Content creators can apply the Creative Commons link for non‐commercial use, and the Ozmo link for commercial use.
