WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal Publishers Can Quickly Deploy the Popular Licensing Toolbar
SEATTLE, Washington, June 5, 2012 – More than 30 million news and feature articles on large and small websites have been tagged with iCopyright’s popular toolbar. The toolbar gives content publishers the ability to monetize innovative content services, and makes it easy for readers to share and reuse content while respecting publishers’ copyrights. Publishers can also instantly syndicate their content to other sites and track which sites have republished their content.
“iCopyright has always had a strong presence among large and sophisticated publishers who monetize their web content by offering instant reuse licenses,” said Andrew Elston, iCopyright CEO. “We think publishers of all sizes, including the smallest bloggers and independent websites, should be able to monetize their content in the same ways. By offering add-on components for the three most popular publishing platforms—WordPress, Joomla and Drupal—we have made it easy for these websites to participate in the content marketplace. Any content publisher of any size can download and activate the toolbar in less than five minutes,” he said.
Publishers who deploy iCopyright using one of these platforms pay no upfront or monthly fees for basic licensing services. When readers reuse copyrighted content, publishers monetize the uses with additional advertising inventory or direct license fees. iCopyright handles all the transactional details and remits licensing revenues to the publishers.
iCopyright (www.icopyright.com) provides licensing and clearinghouse services for digital content worldwide. Since its founding in 1998, iCopyright has promoted and protected the proprietary rights of tens of millions of pieces of content for thousands of publishers and content creators. iCopyright also offers Discovery™, a content monitoring and infringement detection service for publishers that locates copies of content posted on the Internet and automates the recovery and remedy of infringed content, and Clip&Copy®, a free press-monitoring service. iCopyright has received two CODiE Awards from the Software and Information Industry Association and has been repeatedly named to the annual list of EContent 100 Companies that Matter Most in the Digital Content Industry.
