Configurable Cloud-Based Systems: A Paradigm Shift in Rights & Permissions Management
Sr. Manager – Rights and Permissions
The knowledge and information industry stands on the bedrock of security, integrity, and authority of data and intellectual property. The publishing sector is a critical part of this industry. All content – image, text, videos, biographies, music, lyrics, poems, research papers etc. – are owned by the creator. A publisher/author needs to obtain a legal agreement, under which they can use someone else’s creations.
A publisher’s ability to effectively manage its portfolio of intellectual property can result in significant monetization opportunities. However, modern technologies have enabled open access to information and introduced new challenges for intellectual property rights management in the industry.
In the world of publishing, the intricacies of rights and permissions management cannot be underestimated. Ignoring or mismanaging these aspects can lead to a plethora of complications, both legal and operational. Here are some significant issues publishers might face due to inadequate management:
Stephanie Campbell’s copyright infringement suit against Gannett Media Corp. highlighted that copyright management is a complex minefield, hard to navigate for publishers.
With the scale of information and the proliferation of digital publishing, manually managing access and permissions of divergent content types from myriad creators is extremely difficult and inefficient. There are multiple risks associated with non-adherence to information copyrights. Of these, the primary ones are:
Beyond potential legal fines, there might be unforeseen costs associated with rectifying unauthorized use, such as fees for acquiring retroactive rights or compensations to aggrieved parties.
Discovering an issue with rights after content has been produced or distributed necessitates rework. This can delay project timelines, pushing back launches or distribution dates.
Regular oversights or infringements can tarnish a publisher’s image, making it challenging to foster trust with authors, partners, and consumers. Over time, this can impact a company’s credibility and market position.
Despite a general acceptance of copyright principles, legislation concerning access rights and permissions varies significantly across jurisdictions. The sheer scale of policies and regulations that entities across open distributed information systems need to follow introduces performance bottlenecks in the publishing process. Configurable cloud-based systems can help overcome these bottlenecks. Here’s how.
