Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0042555A1] The system and method of the invention generally provides for registering works of authorship in an online database (100) and providing licensing information about authorship with several rights agencies, royalty collecting societies and copyright offices, and the online database (100) in a single process. The invention allows individuals to identify a particular work of authorship form among many close variants; analyzing the license rights (143-148) necessary for a particular use of the work by an individual in a particular territory, determining the source of the licensing rights (151) in that territory and forwarding a request for a license to that source (152). Finally, in a preferred embodiment, the invention may issue a license (154) to an individual for the use of a work contemplated.
