Copyright Clearance Center Expands Partner Program
Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a not-for-profit organization and provider of licensing solutions, announced the expansion of its partner program and details of its recent partnerships with life sciences PDF search platform Pubget and web-based learning resource Study.Net.
CCC works with application vendors, publishing platform providers, and content aggregators to provide mutual customers with easy-to-use rights licensing and advisory tools within their applications’ workflow. This is enabled through CCC’s Web Services, which provide automated access to CCC’s rich rights licensing database for the purpose of search, pricing, and ordering of copyright permissions. The partner program has recently been expanded to include opportunities for business and academic associations, consortia, and workflow enablers to improve the value of their own products and services by including licensing capabilities.
Pubget, the search engine for life science PDFs, has launched a “Get Permissions” feature across its article pages, making one-click access to copyright licenses possible from the Pubget research platform, extending Pubget’s copyright compliance efforts. Permissions now offered through Pubget include rights to post to course management systems, re-publish in journals or books, present at conferences, or make other commercial uses of the PDFs delivered through Pubget.
Study.Net, a web-based learning resource designed to accelerate and enhance the educational experience for students and professors around the world, now allows users to obtain copyright permissions when a professor or staff member uploads digital scans of copyrighted content into Study.Net-based courses.
