CCC Introduces New Content Licensing Services

Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a not-for-profit organization and provider of licensing solutions, launched a suite of new services to simplify the licensing of content between rightsholders and enable republication: the Permissions Acquisition Service and the Republication License. 

These services were developed in response to the proliferation of new digital formats and rights standards, which have led to a dramatic increase in the types and numbers of permissions publishers need prior to going to market with publications containing previously published content. As a result, permissions acquisition has placed a significant burden on publishers’ staffs, as well as their production schedules.

The Permissions Acquisition Service provides a team of experienced rights acquisition specialists who acquire the permissions needed to reuse content in new titles or expand the reuse rights when republishing backlist titles in new editions, formats, or languages. This service offers detailed reporting that equips publishers with powerful planning tools, enabling the publisher to manage projects with confidence. CCC provides a record of the rights acquired for future reference and streamlines payment to a single invoice.

The Republication License is an opportunity for both vendors and acquirers of republication rights to participate in a smart, streamlined licensing solution that eliminates the time-consuming, expensive back-and-forth of rights negotiation. In creating this balance, CCC’s long history of successful rights brokerage is uniquely powerful. The Republication License enables rightsholders to acquire and grant rights directly on This self-service model balances the needs of buyers and sellers of republication rights, avoiding the costly and labor intensive nature of these transactions. Sellers benefit from pricing flexibility and automation to more efficiently manage operations.
