In signing an agreement with Copyright Clearance Center, what am I allowing Copyright Clearance Center to do with my intellectual property
In general, you are authorizing Copyright Clearance Center to grant permission to others to reuse excerpts from your works and to collect royalties on your behalf. You choose the works to grant permission for and set the royalty fee to be charged. Pre-authorizing your works—that is, giving authorization in advance—speeds the permissions process for content users and reduces the likelihood of infringement. All agreements are non-exclusive.
