When they wish to share articles with a larger group or download them to their own sites, iCopyright's intelligent copyright clearing service quickly delivers licensed copies in a variety of formats.

"Investor's Business Daily provides unique perspectives and analysis for disciplined investors," said Heather Davis, IBD's Vice President of Licensing, "and our subscribers expect to be able to leverage our content just as they would any other asset. For IBD, that means finding an easy way to balance their desire for various reuse options while preserving our proprietary rights and controlling where our content goes. iCopyright helps us communicate and maintain this balance."

Michael O'Donnell, iCopyright Founder and CEO, observed, "Newspaper publishers today face many challenges. They should not have to be saddled with managing myriad details of who is using which of their articles for what purpose and where! iCopyright lets publishers like IBD establish the rules--we handle the details and generate new revenues for them." O'Donnell added, "We see a growing trend among daily newspapers who want to monetize legitimate secondary uses of their content. IBD joins other leading newspapers, such as the Boston Globe, Toronto Star, and the Globe & Mail, who have implemented iCopyright's technology."    

The complete suite of iCopyright services includes ad-supported no-fee permissions for limited printing and e-mailing; instant permissions for e-mail distribution, photocopies, republication and excerpting; customized reprints and e-prints; and convenient reader services.
