Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a firm dedicated to creating global licensing and content solutions that make copyright work, recently brought together corporate customers and publishers for its third annual Joint Advisory Group Meeting at the Battery Wharf Hotel in Boston.

At the meeting, attendees reported on collective achievements and challenges around content acquisition and licensing, and shared innovative ideas to better serve the information needs of their employees and bring efficiencies to the research process. They examined such topics as external use rights for published content, the complexities of international copyright, the value of content and usage analytics, gathering data and competitive intelligence, and the growing use of text and data mining tools by corporations to guide R&D.
