If you haven’t checked out the Copyright Clearance Center’s new Web site (www.copyright.com), it’s worth a look. The revamped site, which was introduced in mid-May, features crisp graphics, a streamlined search and order process, and easy-to-use functions for Business, Academics, and Copyright Central. "The Copyright Central section is the new copyright information portal," according to Bill Burger, vice president of marketing (right). "Users can click on the link and find the latest news on copyright topics, our new blog and others, and plenty of reference articles." The new site was more than a year in the making, said Burger. "We worked with reps from more than 60 organizations via usability tests and focus groups to create the site." People are using content in changing ways, and the way in which permissions, copies, information sharing, and protecting IP interests have changed too. "People are adapting to the new ways that content is being used, and we’re here to make the process as easy as possible."
