Abstract: Pubget and Copyright Clearance Center Bring Copyright Licensing to the Pubget PlatformNew feature helps users quickly obtain copyright information and permissions

September 20, 2010 – Cambridge, MA Copyright Clearance Center (CCC), the rights licensing experts, and Pubget, the search engine for life science PDFs, today launched a new "Get Permissions" feature across article pages. The addition of this feature, powered by CCC’s Rightslink Permissions Direct technology, makes one click access to copyright licenses possible from the Pubget research platform and extends Pubget’s copyright-compliance efforts.

"Pubget’s primary mission is to make access to copyright-compliant content easier for scientific researchers," notes Ryan Jones, President of Pubget. "We’re pleased to add"Get Permissions" links because they extend the value of each individual article to our users as well as to the article publishers."

"Our integration with Pubget is exciting because it simplifies copyright compliance by embedding copyright permissions into the daily content discovery workflow of researchers," said Diane Pierson, VP of Marketing at Copyright Clearance Center, "Pubget is simplifying the process of copyright by putting this new feature in the hands of the hundreds of thousands of scientists that use the site each month."

While the "Get Permission" links on Pubget appear simple, they have far reaching benefits. Specifically, while reading, citing, or bookmarking articles from Pubget’s 25-million article collection, users are now one click away from the Copyright Clearance Center for obtaining permissions pertaining to that specific article. Permissions can be priced and purchased for any use, from republication to classroom handouts and are granted by the copyright holder.

Pubget delivers millions of PDF articles from thousands of publishers in one interface. As a standalone article destination, Pubget is creating an ecosystem of article-level tools around these PDFs making content discovery, access and copyright management much easier for the user than traversing multiple platforms. The "Get Permission" link advances this mission by incorporating another workflow tool into the environment.
