In this electronic age, organizations need to make it simple for employees to lawfully share content and efficiently manage copyright compliance.
Clearing permissions on an individual basis from thousands of German and international rightsholders can prove quite challenging.
One license, global usage rights to millions of content sources.
VG WORT has developed a license with the assistance of Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) that simplifies copyright compliance by providing employees of German companies and their subsidiaries worldwide with the rights to share content around the world from millions of German and international information sources while respecting the intellectual property rights of others. RightsDirect is a sales partner in Germany for VG WORT.
The VG WORT Digital Copyright License includes rights from more than 400,000 German and international rightsholders, including the most important global publishers.
The RightSphere rights advisory tool provides employees with detailed information about the coverage of the VG WORT Digital Copyright License on a title-by-title basis. Your colleagues get the answers they need to share content responsibly, you gain insight into the content employees use and your organization benefits by reducing its risk of copyright infringement.
RightSphere displays your license rights to your employees in an easy-to-navigate Web interface. Users simply enter the desired publication title or ISBN/ISSN in the Search box and the green check marks in the results let them know immediately if the content is covered for use under the terms of the license.
As a licensee you are entitled to our copyright awareness programs to educate your employees and assist with your compliance programs. Our instructor-led trainings incorporate group discussions, question and answer sessions, and analysis of real-world scenarios.
