CCC Releases a Study of How Knowledge Workers Handle Information
CCC is unveiling key findings from “Information Seeking and Consumption Study,” which is based on data gathered by Outsell. They include the following:
- [P]otential instances of unlicensed sharing per employee in the executive suite [were] significantly higher than middle management or individual users, even as executives had the highest reported level of copyright awareness.
- [E]mail is still the preferred method of distributing information but is trending downwards.
- Collaboration tools such as Microsoft Teams, Slack, and Google Workspace continue to gain traction, doubling the percentage of respondents who say these are their preferred methods of sharing information from 16% in 2020 to 33% today.
“With collaboration tools and practices continuously evolving, companies must take care to protect their organization from the risk of copyright infringement,” says Tracey Armstrong, CCC’s president and CEO. “This study reaffirms the importance of having a well-communicated copyright policy and education program, supported by comprehensive licensing solutions.”
