What is the difference between Permissions Gateway and Copyright.com Link?
The key difference is the level of integration that each solution provides. Permissions Gateway provides seamless, bi-directional integration between a vendor's application and our rights search and ordering process (built on our unique, extremely large rights database) in order to streamline the permissions process. End users never have to leave the vendor's application, and permissions can be obtained with a few mouse clicks.
Copyright.com Link provides a deep link (or smart link) from an application or Web service to the permissions summary page on Copyright Clearance Center's website, copyright.com. Integration is achieved quickly, with minimal effort, but permissions are obtained by transacting on CCC's website.
