If so, PLSclear can help. It makes the process simpler and quicker.
It solves three common problems:
1. Identifying the current rights holder.
2. Knowing what information to supply them with.
3. Finding the relevant contact in the rights holding organisation.
Identify the current rights holder
This is often difficult, and leads to delay and frustration. PLSclear has a uniquely reliable database of rights holders, which identifies the rights holder 9 times out of 10.
Furthermore, for particularly problematic requests, you can contact the PLS helpdesk and we will research on your behalf.
Know what information to supply rights holders about reuse
This is often unclear, and results in emails going back and forth, and further delay. PLS has an easy-to-use, dynamic form with guidance notes, which has been developed by leading rights specialists.
So, it ensures you provide all of the necessary information, first time around.
Find the relevant contact person
Without the right contact email address, requests can get delayed or lost. PLSclear has a database of current contacts within publishers, so permissions emails go to the right person.
If things go wrong, we will follow up on your behalf. You also receive a copy of you email as proof of making a request.
Did you know
We also offer permissions consultancy, outsourcing and workshops.
