HeinOnline Introduces Copyright Permissions Services via CCC's Rightsconnect

Buffalo, NY, November 10, 2008 – HeinOnline, a product of William S. Hein & Co., Inc. has integrated its online legal research collection directly with Copyright Clearance Center to provide legal researchers a fast and easy way to price and obtain copyright permissions for using content found in HeinOnline. HeinOnline is the first legal publishing platform to partner with Copyright Clearance Center (CCC).

HeinOnline is Hein’s premier online product with more than 40 million pages of legal history available in an online, fully-searchable, image-based PDF format. With more than 1,100 law journals, HeinOnline bridges the gap in legal research by offering all law journals from inception. In addition to its extensive Law Journal collection, HeinOnline also contains presidential materials, treaties, international and foreign legal research materials, statutes, federal regulations, legal classics, world trials and more.

Using CCC’s Rightsconnect technology, HeinOnline’s users will have one-click access to obtain copyright permissions for distributing or using an article found in the legal research database. When a legal researcher chooses to print or download an article from HeinOnline, they can click on the "Get Permissions" button found on the print/download options screen to access CCC’s extensive rights licensing database. Once the researcher clicks "Get Permissions" they will be presented with a Permissions Summary page on CCC’s web site that displays the various permission types associated with that publication. This streamlines the permissions process, allowing users to obtain permissions faster and easier.

HeinOnline joins more than 15 other leading publishers who are offering permission solutions via Copyright Clearance Center to encourage the sharing of knowledge while supporting the basic principles of copyright.

"We are committed to protecting the copyrights of our HeinOnline content providers," said Kevin Marmion, President of William S. Hein & Co., Inc. "Our partnership with Copyright Clearance Center helps us to fulfill this commitment while making it highly convenient for our users to obtain copyright permission for uses of copyrighted material outside the HeinOnline license. We are very pleased to be working with such a well respected organization as Copyright Clearance Center."

"We are pleased to welcome HeinOnline to the Rightsconnect partner program," said Bill Burger, CCC's Vice President of Marketing. "We're delighted that we can help facilitate the important exchange of information by making it easier for legal researchers to get copyright permission."
