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.

In 2010, Copyright Clearance Center established RightsDirect, a wholly-owned subsidiary, to meet the licensing needs of companies around the world. RightsDirect allows organizations to re-use and share the most relevant digital content across borders. Based in Amsterdam, RightsDirect works collaboratively with rightsholder associations and Reproduction Rights Organizations.

Together, CCC and RightsDirect serve more than 35,000 companies around the globe.
