Risk Management & The Economic Value of Copyright Licensing
June 15, 2023
By Canadian Consulting Engineer
In a world where sharing a published article or industry standard can be as easy as a mouse click, organizations struggle to manage their risks around copyright infringement while also enabling collaboration and knowledge sharing. Each publisher has its own restrictions on reuse, and risk managers face the challenge of complying with a wide variety of subscription terms and conditions.
In addition, as more organizations cut back or eliminate their internal libraries, employees lack guidance on how to share and distribute digital content while remaining within the bounds of copyright laws. By strategic licensing of content—in addition to their traditional subscriptions—engineering organizations are able to reduce risk, and administrative costs, and collaborate strategically with others both within and outside the enterprise.
Key takeaways include:
- How licensing content can increase its value to the organization
- Why protecting the organization from the risk of copyright infringement matters in the digital age
- How copyright licenses benefit the enterprise in streamlined access and risk mitigation
Join information expert Mary Ellen Bates to learn how engineering organizations can reduce risk, improve collaboration, and optimize content and subscription spending through copyright compliance licensing.
