Rights and Permissions Management as a Service for Book Publishers
Copyright furthers all creative interests by making the rich marketplace of ideas available to a wider audience. Resourceful rights and permissions management supports author content while maximizing the publisher’s budget.
Cenveo Publisher Services provides dedicated onshore and offshore staff who offer critical thinking and analysis of permissions to identify sourcing strategies that lower costs and maintain production cycles.
Rights and permissions starts in the content development phase. By identifying a rights strategy early, the author can stay on budget. Research and permissions runs alongside production cycles with clearly defined milestones. Chapter-by-chapter clearance means no surprises at files-to-printer dates. Hiring specialists in each phase offers coordinated, concurrent workflows and quality control at every stage. Targeted international expertise also allows a spectrum of pricing options.
Copyright law is a balance of competing interests, and provides both protections and freedoms. Effective rights and permissions management capitalizes on the freedoms of the law’s three main categories: fair use; public domain and open access; and permissions. Workflow is defined by the basic elements of creating a record, licensing uses, and crediting sources.
