click on the iCopyright icon at the top of the page, they are
asked to choose whether they are licensing the content for commercial
or nonprofit use. Then they are presented with a list of licensing
options and prices. Readers can select instant Web reprints or
encrypted "quick print" Adobe PDFs and receive the content and
license instantly. Readers can also use the Instant Clearance
Service to purchase a photocopy license or to request a bid for
custom reprints. Reuters can track all licensing activity through
iCopyright Publisher Central, a secure account management extranet.
iCopyright invented the Instant Clearance Service, the only

suite of Web-based tools and services that enables publishers
to manage their online licensing and reprints business; Reprint
Central, which allows reprint providers to receive and process
sales leads through the Instant Clearance Service; and iCopyright
Clip and Copy, the only news-clipping service that returns results
that can be instantly licensed for reuse.
