Rights Clearance and Research

Unsure about the legal issues surrounding the content you've selected for your latest publishing, museum, or advertising project? Attorneys -- do you wish you could outsource copyright research? We're located just minutes from the U.S. Copyright Office at the Library of Congress so why go to the expense and trouble of coming to Washington to do this research yourself? Let the experienced RightsAssist team clear the rights to the text and images you need.

Content Use Negotiations

RightsAssist has established relationships with hundreds of image sources, including international stock agencies, public and private museums, and freelance photographers. Let us use these relationships to get you the best prices for the images you need for your publication, museum display, or advertisement.

Rights of Privacy/Publicity Clearance

The RightsAssist team can identify, research, and document any rights of publicity or privacy issues involved in your project. We have extensive experience working with estate representatives and securing model and property releases. Take the uncertainty and guesswork out of the licensing process and let us help protect you.


Cleared the rights once before? Let us show you how RightsPro can simplify this process, saving you time and money. If you have a multi-edition publishing project, an ongoing museum installment, or an advertising campaign, we can help you!

Copyright Enforcement

The reasons for copyright infringement can range from simple ignorance to willful misuse and we offer a range of services to match. Let us handle anything from sending DMCA notices to pre-settlement letters or even facilitating litigation.

Data Management and Record Keeping

RightsPro can put the information you need at your finger tips. Whether you're putting together a multimedia publication or cleaning up the archives of your organization, our site and expertise can transform your records into a valuable and accessible resource.

Due Diligence Reports

In the event that complete licensing of the content you need is impossible because of incomplete or inaccessible information, RightsAssist will thoroughly document all research performed to date. In one document, this due diligence report will give you the information you need to assess risk, allowing you to make an appropriate business decision regarding the direction of your project.

Concept Appraisal

Planning a new ad campaign? We can help you avoid potential conflicts or embarrassment by researching slogans or concepts to see if they've been used before. Save your business from the time and expense of duplicating what other businesses have done in their own campaigns.
