Copyright Clearance Center Named To EContent's Top 100; Rightslink Service Lauded as Rights Management Leader.
DANVERS, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 20, 2002
For the second straight year, Copyright Clearance Center has been selected by EContent magazine as one of the top 100 companies in the digital content industry. The list is featured in the publication's December issue.
EContent identified Copyright Clearance Center (CCC), the leading licensing agent for publishers, authors and other rightsholders, as a leader in content rights services. The magazine specifically cited Rightslink(TM), CCC's rights management solution. Rightslink enables users to license copyrighted articles directly from the online point of content--without leaving the publisher's Web site. One of the fastest growing rights management services, Rightslink is featured on hundreds of online publications from a wide range of publishers. Publishers featuring Rightslink on their sites include Dow Jones, The New York Times Company, CMP, Inc., MSNBC and two recent additions, American Health Consultants and over 30 Knight Ridder Digital newspapers nationwide.
"Copyright Clearance Center has been meeting the rights management needs of publishers and users for over 25 years," said Bob Weiner, CCC's vice president, licensing and rightsholder relations. "Rather than develop technology that simply 'locks down' content, CCC makes it easier for end users to access the content they want, while at the same time ensuring that rightsholders are fairly compensated for their work. Rightslink is the most recent example of our view on how best to serve both publishers and end users."
