Engage experienced copyright consultants who can assist you in identifying your copyright issues and address them. We provide copyright consulting services either on an hourly “as needed” basis or on a project basis, depending on your needs.
The consulting process starts with an hour for the initial conversation and any follow up research to clarify issues and identify a potential course of action. We immediately send all our new clients a copy of Copyright Clearance for Creatives. We frequently use the guidelines in the book to help clarify copyright issues with the clients.
The initial conversation gives clients the opportunity to ask questions and identify their copyright issues and concerns. These may be general but more likely are specific to their book, blog, website, and/or other forms of current or future publication.
The second step usually is for the client to provide details about content they want to use in their publication that they feel may be under copyright. Since most clients who contact us are not well versed in copyright law, we often conduct a complete manuscript review to identify all content for which copyright clearance may be needed.
We will review our findings in the manuscript review, we determine the potential scope of any additional consultation and/or clearance services that may be needed. If the scope is more than a few hours of consultation, we develop a formal agreement with terms and conditions so the client knows what to expect in terms of time, expense, and deliverables.
Publishers and Corporations
Publishers and other types of corporations may have significant numbers of issues to be reviewed for copyright compliance. We can work with them and their staff to develop a management system that ensures a high level of copyright compliance in all areas related to the use of copyrighted content and control of others’ use of their copyrighted content.
