Subscriptions and single article purchases typically do not include the rights to further share, store and re-use the content. Storing and sharing copyrighted works - so common in day-to-day business - can easily infringe on the copyrights of others.


A cost effective and simple solution: One license with global usage rights for millions of content sources.

The 'VG WORT Digital Copyright License' has been developed by German collecting society VG WORT and RightsDirect specifically for the needs of German headquartered companies and their worldwide subsidiaries.

For all companies not headquartered in Germany both CCC and RightsDirect offer a similar license, the 'Multinational Copyright License'.

  • NEW: Share copies in joint project teams with team members from your organization's collaboration partners (amendment to the license)
