About Copyright Clearance Center

We make copyright work

Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) offers rights-licensing technology solutions that remove the complexity from copyright. A global rights broker for the world's most sought after materials – such as in- and out-of-print books, journals, newspapers, magazines, movies, television shows, images, blogs and ebooks – CCC makes it easy for businesses and academic institutions to use copyright-protected materials while compensating publishers and content creators for their works.

Based in Amsterdam and with an office in Tokyo, RightsDirect is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Copyright Clearance Center. Working in partnership with the world's leading publishers and collecting societies, we compensate participating rightsholders for the re-use of their works. Together, CCC and RightsDirect serve more than 35,000 companies and over 12,000 publishers around the globe.
