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.
