Press Clipping Service Gives Instant Access to Reprint Rights

Lori Halley 19 May 2009 0 comments

Whether your job is to update your nonprofit’s website with fresh relevant news, or simply to keep colleagues informed of breaking news via your organization’s intranet or email, you might want to put Clip&Copy in your toolbox.

Basically, it's a press clipping service that alerts you to high-quality articles on the topics you choose. So, how is Clip&Copy different from Google Alerts, or any of the other media monitoring services out there that you may already use? One more time-saving feature: it's integrated with iCopyright.com, an automated rights and permissions licensing system.

Clip&Copy® provides subscribers with customized e-mail alerts containing article abstracts and links to full-text articles from a wide variety of industry-leading online publications and news organizations—each with instantly accessible rights to make copies, distribute to clients and colleagues, and use for website postings.

Source publications include the top wire services — Associated Press, United Press International and Reuters — as well as hundreds of online journals, industry and trade publications, and newspapers. More publications are added continually as new publishers sign on with iCopyright to manage their digital content.

To receive “clip advisories” on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis, you must first set up one or more topics. (For a free Basic account, the limit is 3 topics with 10 clips per topic.) 

Just as with Google Alerts, a topic can be any word or phrase you choose — perhaps your organization’s name, search terms related to your mission, or your campaign slogan.

You’ll be notified by email when content that matches your topic(s) is published by “a wide variety of industry-leading online publications and news organizations” — and from there you’ll be able to access the full-text articles, save articles to your personal online ‘Reading Room’ to read at your convenience, and quickly get copyright clearance of the content for various re-distribution purposes.

Watch a demo or try out Clip&Copy with a free Basic account: You can stick with the free version indefinitely, or upgrade to Standard and Premium options ($5.95 and $9.95 per month, respectively) for access to additional features — more clips, more topics, embeddable HTML code to put on your website, RSS feeds, and instant notification, depending on the package you choose. 

License conditions and options for how you may use each article, and the costs of any license, will vary according to terms set by each content publisher.
