CCC and IPR License Collaborate to Help Publishers Discover and Secure Rights to Republish Full Works

Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a global licensing and content solutions organization, has partnered with IPR License to simplify and speed up the process for rightsholders to search, offer, negotiate and complete transactions on a range of subsidiary rights deals through IPR’s online marketplace.

CCC refers users seeking subsidiary rights to IPR License, while IPR License transfers rights and permissions requests for partial books to With over 13 million records, IPR License’s goal is to help publishers, agents, and authors buy and sell rights to full works.

“Given CCC’s interest in scaling voluntary licensing and strengthening international copyright, increasing our focus in subsidiary rights is a natural extension,” said Darren Gillgrass, Director, Product Management, Rightsholder Products and Services, CCC. “Whereas IPR License offers an online platform on which to acquire rights to create a new format or adaptation of an author’s original full work, CCC enables content users to secure permission to reuse portions of content from publishers and authors.”

“IPR License’s bespoke platform TradeRights supplements CCC’s efforts to connect licensors and licensees throughout the world,” said Tom Chalmers, IPR License Managing Director and Founder. “As our organizations provide complementary services, this partnership is a natural fit and one we have plans to build on in the future.”

About IPR License

IPR License is the platform for publishers, authors and literary agents to list and license literary rights. The platform offers the opportunity to monetise or find the best new content in a global marketplace. It also acts as a copyright hub making it easier to locate copyright holders to clear permission for use of their work.

With 14m records already on the system, rightsholders assign records to their account and add new records – whether already published or not – as well as adding additional information to their records. Those looking to purchase rights can then contact the rightsholder and complete the transaction directly.
