If you are a publisher and would like to use PLSclear to manage requests to reuse your content, PLS offer two levels of service to manage your permissions within PLSclear:
- Permissions Direct is a service for publishers who want to manage their own permissions using PLSclear. Permissions Direct gives publishers full access to manage their own permissions using the full functionality of PLSclear, which can generate licences for you, calculate permissions fees based on your pricing, and take payment from requestors. We charge a 12% handling fee on fee payable licences only for Permissions Direct.
- Permissions Assist is a fully outsourced service for publishers who want PLS to manage permissions on their behalf. Requests that come through PLSclear for publishers signed up to Permissions Assist will be directed to PLS in the first instance. We charge a 20% handling fee for fee payable licences only for Permissions Assist.
There are no upfront costs to use PLSclear and we don't charge any annual subscriptions to use PLSclear and the service is open to publishers of all sizes and sectors worldwide. More information is available at PLS-Permissions.com.
