Copyright: Doing the right thing

Infringement happens every day despite the best of intentions.

Technology continues to simplify how workers find and exchange information. Colleagues collaborate on a regular basis via email, cloud-based tools such as SharePoint and Teams, and company intranet pages.

Content Use: Right Versus Wrong

Additional rights are required to exchange and store published content including articles from trade and scientific journals and other publications. Doing so without obtaining these rights may infringe the copyrights of others. 

Respect and Fair Play

When companies don’t obtain the additional rights they need to reuse and store articles, rightsholders are not properly compensated for their work. Unintentional infringement is still infringement.

Doing the right thing is easy

Negotiating rights with numerous publishers can be inefficient and frustrating. In the fast-paced business world, getting the rights your organisation needs can seem like a road block to achieving your company’s goals.

The Multinational Copyright Licence from RightsDirect can help you simplify your corporate compliance policy requirements by providing the reuse rights you  most need in one licence.

If your coworkers share, reproduce or save digital information and compliance is important to you, the Multinational Copyright Licence is the only solution in the market today that consolidates so many of the rights that you need in one place.
