iCopyright Introduces New Instant Licensing Services

Jun 06, 2008

iCopyright, a copyright system for digital content, has launched two new instant licensing services that help online publishers promote lawful reuses of their copyrighted content while protecting their rights. The new services include Instant PDF E-Prints and Instant Web Post. Instant PDF E-Prints allows a licensee to obtain a rendering of the original article in a standard PDF file that can be posted on a site for a defined period. Licensees pay a fee to the publisher for the rights according to the duration of the posting. iCopyright monitors the site and automatically prompts the licensee to renew or remove the file when the license term expires. The new licensing service gives publishers two options for permitting reuse of content—by duration in months and by page view counts.
