For 15 years, Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) has partnered with Outsell, Inc., the voice of the data, information and analytics economy, to conduct quantitative research to provide cumulative insights about how copyrighted content is used and shared in the workplace.

Whether breaking research, industry trends, competitive intelligence, or market insights, organizations rely on the reuse of published content to support collaboration and drive innovation. Behaviors and attitudes of business professionals around content use and sharing have shifted over time as they seek to establish a competitive edge, and the events of 2020 triggered significant changes to where and how workers engage and collaborate.

The rate of work-related content sharing has tripled since 2016, yet 47% of professionals are either unaware of their organization’s copyright policy or unsure of its details.  So it is essential for legal counsel, information managers, and others managing copyright compliance and content workflow to understand how employees consume and reuse information to help solve for these new challenges in the new year.

Join me and Ned May, Vice President, Analytics Operations for Outsell, Inc., on Thursday, 28 January at 11:00a.m. EST (17:00 CET) for a full review of the latest Information Seeking and Consumption Study.

You’ll gain a better understanding of how copyrighted content is used and shared in the workplace, employees’ level of copyright awareness, and the impact of working from home on information sharing. We’ll also show you how a clear copyright policy and licensing solutions can support your streamlined content workflow.
