Copyright Clearance Center and IPR License Form Wide-Ranging Strategic Partnership

[Press Release]

IPR License enters into strategic alliance with CCC

IPR License has entered into a strategic alliance with Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) to bolster its range of global rights, licensing and content solutions.

The alliance will see the two companies work closely together and share resources to help publishers and authors maximise every opportunity throughout the content life cycle, protect their intellectual property and generate new revenue.

IPR License is the platform for authors and publishers to list and license literary rights. The platform offers the opportunity to monetise or find the best new content in a global marketplace. It also acts as a copyright hub making it easier to locate copyright holders to clear permission for use of their work. The IPR License platform is currently in the process of rolling out its latest transactional functionality which will allow all interested parties to make offers on titles and complete full transactions therefore increasing existing, and creating new, revenue streams.

Founded in 1978 as a not-for-profit organization, CCC provides smart solutions that simplify the access and licensing of content. These solutions let businesses and academic institutions quickly get permission to share copyright-protected materials, while compensating publishers and creators for the use of their works.

Tom Chalmers, Managing Director at IPR License, commented:
“This alliance represents an exciting opportunity for IPR License to work closely with CCC to boost our already extensive global rights, licensing and permissions offerings and help support even more publishers and authors all over the globe. We’re delighted to be working with such a well-respected and established cornerstone of the publishing industry, not to mention market-leader in the licensing of content, and look forward to utilising this alliance to help take IPR License to the next level.

“We’re really hitting the ground running in 2014 and have a number of exciting plans in place to grow expand the business and add even more value to publishers and authors looking to license creative content.”

Tracey Armstrong, CEO at Copyright Clearance Centre, added:
“CCC is excited to be working with IPR License and we look forward to learning more about this interesting space in global rights licensing.”

About IPR License
IPR License is the platform for publishers, authors and literary agents to list and license literary rights. The platform offers the opportunity to monetise or find the best new content in a global marketplace. It also acts as a copyright hub making it easier to locate copyright holders to clear permission for use of their work.

With 13m records already on the system, rights-holders assign records to their account and add new records – whether already published or not – as well as adding additional information to their records. Those looking to purchase rights can then contact the rights-holder and arrange complete the transaction directly.

The IPR License platform is currently in the process of rolling out its latest transactional functionality which will allow all interested parties to make offers on titles and complete full transactions therefore increasing existing, and creating new, revenue streams.

We’re currently in discussion over a number of major partnerships, which are expected to be rolled out throughout 2014 as we look to become established as the industry standard tool when it comes to rights and licensing a variety of content.
