It’s important to know what’s needed and what to expect

It’s important to know what’s needed and what to expect, especially since permissions clearance is likely just one component of your project.

Your schedule should allow adequate time for permission clearances. It can take up to 6-8 weeks to obtain an agreement, depending on the rightsholder. Images usual clear more quickly. Also note that content may have more than one layer of rights to clear. Be sure to communicate your deadline and price points.

Have bibliography or list of citations prepared. Creative Compliance will evaluate the citations to determine what requires permission and what doesn’t. We will also forecast possible rights and fees issues upon initial review. Original sources are always best and help reduce the handling time.

Have your publication information prepared:

  • Title of End Product
  • Authors/Editors
  • Copyright Year
  • Rights Needed (Print, Electronic, audio etc. – If Electronic, specify eBook, CD, web etc.) Specify if marketing and ancillary rights are desired
  • Territories of distribution
  • Languages
  • Estimated Quantity (If website – provide number of hits or subscription and provide URL and specify whether website is password protected)
  • Projected Lifetime of Product
