LicenseFriendly & Fair Use / Fair Dealing

Posted on May 14, 2013
By Dan Sauerhaft

Adjective. li·cense·friend·ly. Describes a website that simultaneously makes it (i) easy for users to license content and (ii) difficult for users to steal content. For example:

“The Daily Planet sure is licensefriendly! I licensed an article for republication on my blog today with a single click and for only $5. That was a no-brainer – especially since I know they monitor the internet for unauthorized reuses and go after pirates aggressively.”

As publishers try to solidify their online business models, they aim to distribute and republish content widely while monetizing it wherever it travels. This can conflict with fair use (U.S.) and fair dealing (Canada) which gives readers legal rights to reuse limited amounts of content in certain circumstances without compensation.

What publishers often don’t realize is that the best way to resolve this conflict is to make your website licensefriendly. Make it easy for folks to license your content easily, instantly, and at a reasonable price. At the same time, take steps to prevent piracy.

iCopyright's Toolbar enables your copyrighted content to be licensed, syndicated, shared, promoted, and tracked. Content can also be sourced from other publishers for republishing on your site.

The secret is the "iCopyright Tag:" a fragment of meta data embedded within each article and rendered as a series of links, and an intelligent, interactive copyright notice. Together, these tools and tags enable iCopyright's Virtuous Circle for Content Monetization.

iCopyright Conductor Console

Did you know you have a separate administrator console outside of your CMS admin that allows you to control the many features offered by iCopyright? You can modify how the iCopyright article tools appear on your web site, determine which services to offer, what to charge for reuse licensing, and other things.

To change prices, modify services, get reports, execute syndication agreements, etc., go to your Conductor console. Your iCopyright plugin is automatically configured with a default set of business rules that grant users permission to use a limited amount of your content for free, and to license the rights to use your content for a fee. You can modify these services and prices by logging into the iCopyright Conductor console to chnge the settings for your publication.

Here are three ways to get to your Conductor console:
