RIGHTS MANAGEMENT

Technology has made it easy for anyone to create and distribute content. It has also made it easy to share and “borrow” others’ creative work.

We exist in a culture where duplicating or repurposing content is common, but not always legal. When the “It’s free. I found it on the internet” mentality spills into a professional environment, the ramifications of copyright infringement and unauthorized use can be costly.

The TEAM Companies provide thorough ownership research, negotiation for licensing & permissions and license agreement review for use of the following:

  • Photography
  • Video/Film clips
  • Stock Footage
  • Specialty props & wardrobe
  • Artwork
  • Logos/Icons/mascots and other corporate identifiers
  • Personal likeness
  • Quote
  • Locations
  • Unique Design Elements (i.e. lighting design on the Eiffel Tower)

Rights Management Technology

The TEAM On-Line Client System’s (TOCS) Rights Management portal is designed to help you manage:

  • Tracking talent use & expirations
  •  Tracking all licensed elements in a project
  •  Entering essential metadata information related to conditions of use of that element
  •  Uploading reference versions of the asset
  •  Uploading copies of key documents
  •  Generating custom reports

TOCS users can log in here.

OPEN API:

TTC has created an open API so that TOCS can interface with Distribution and Digital Asset Management (DAM) systems. This feature allows:

  •  Client notification when the use of a performer or licensed element has expired or is about to expire
  •  Metadata entered by producers or business affairs personnel can be transferred to designated DAM system and attached to final asset
