Rights and Permissions

Rights and Permissions 2018-11-06T10:51:42+00:00

Manage content rights, text permissions, and licensing with ease

According to the U.S. Copyright Office, “Copyright is a form of intellectual property law that protects original works of authorship and artistic origin. Although copyright laws do not protect facts, ideas, systems, or methods of operation, it may protect the way these ideas are expressed.”

Copyright laws first came into existence in 1710 and since then have evolved to protect works by individuals and entities. While we see user rights on a copyright material evolving in an increasingly digital world, the situation is getting extremely complex for publishers. Not only do they have to protect their content from unauthorized use and copyright infringement, but also have to ensure that their work does not infringe on other’s copyright.

Granting and acquiring rights and permissions to an original work today is both difficult and critical, yet an important function for publishers to monetize existing content and safeguard from losses caused by copyright violations.
