Copyright: Doing the right thing

Infringement happens every day without bad intentions

Colleagues share and store articles on a regular basis via email and cloud-based tools such as Sharepoint or intranet pages.

Sharing Content: Right Versus Wrong

You need additional rights to share and store articles from trade and scientific journals and other publications. Sharing or storing without 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, authors and publishers suffer because they don’t receive the financial compensation to which they are entitled. Even unintentional infringement is still infringement.

Doing the right thing is easy

Negotiating rights with dozens or sometimes hundreds of publishers can be time consuming and frustrating. In today’s fast paced business world, getting the rights your organization needs can seem like a road block for your company’s goals.

With RightsDirect, working on your corporate policy compliance requirements can be much simpler. RightsDirect has made it easy to get the reuse rights you most need with one license. The Multinational Copyright License streamlines the process of getting rights, so that employees can share and store published material, while authors and publishers receive compensation for the use of their works.

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


The Multinational Copyright License: It doesn’t have to be complicated

The Multinational Copyright License is a single source of global rights that empowers your entire company to efficiently use and share published content, accelerate innovation, reduce costs, and simplify copyright compliance.

Share Millions of Published Works

With the Multinational Copyright License, your entire organization can share copyrighted content from millions of journals, books, magazines and other sources with confidence.

Drive Business Forward

Because the Multinational Copyright License reduces time and costs related to pursuing individual rights, and accelerates collaboration across global teams, your company can focus on what really matters – innovation.

Minimize Infringement Risk

You can relax, knowing your employees have the rights to share copyrighted material while respecting third-party intellectual property rights.
