About the Copyright Hub

The Copyright Hub aims to help copyright work the way the internet works by making the process of giving and getting permission – the basic building block of the copyright process – fit for purpose in the age of the Internet.

Licensing -the process of getting and granting permission to use creative works- is at the heart of copyright, but it’s not always easy, especially online. The Copyright Hub is unlocking copyright by making licensing a simple, automated process.

This video explains a bit about what we’re doing.
