Rights & Permissions

Rights and Permissions Management as a Service for 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.

KnowledgeWorks Global Ltd. 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.

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.
