Copyright Clearance Center and Vyou Partner to Enable Content Owners to License, Sell, Deliver and Protect Their Assets Online.

Business/Technology Editors

DANVERS, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 9, 2001

Content Buyers Get Instant Access to High-Value

Content over the Web

Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), the world's largest licensing agent for text reproduction rights, and Vyou Inc., the leading provider of Web-based content access management solutions, today announced a partnership that enables publishers and other content owners to license, package, deliver and protect their high-value online content.

Rightslink(TM), CCC's digital rights management solution, combined with Vyoufirst(TM), Vyou's content access management solution, gives owners of online text, images and video streams a secure, point-of-content commerce solution on their Web pages. Publishers can sell original content, grant permission to redistribute content and sell reprints-directly from the content itself.

"Publishers and other copyright holders can outsource burdensome transaction administration while keeping full control of pricing, formatting, terms of use and the types of media in which their content can be reproduced," said Joseph S. Alen, CCC's president . "Our rights and transaction management technology combined with Vyou's asset protection solution lets content owners build new revenue streams with confidence, by selling valuable intellectual properties they might not otherwise have offered over the Web."

Content owners determine whether Web site visitors can view, copy, capture, save and/or print content, and they control what content, if any, can leave the browser. They can also create highly targeted business models, such as a "try before you buy" option, to promote sales.

"The joint solution from Vyou and CCC gives content owners unprecedented flexibility to price online content in a protected environment," said Peter Levy, Vyou's CEO. "And it gives content buyers instant access to high-value content for nearly every type of use, via a quick and simple online transaction."
