Unlimited Priorities eBook Offers Key Legal Information

Cape Coral, FL (June 19, 2014) — Unlimited Priorities LLC, a firm specializing in support for small and medium-size companies in the information and publishing industries, along with consultative services to the library and archives communities, is proud to announce that Tracey Armstrong, President and Chief Executive Officer at Copyright Clearance Center, Inc., has agreed to write the foreword to its forthcoming eBook, Pocket Copyright Guide for Publishers, a publication geared specifically toward copyright issues faced by these organizations.

Authored by Laura N. Gasaway, Paul B. Eaton Distinguished Professor of Law Emerita, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and edited by Iris L. Hanney, Pocket Copyright Guide for Publishers provides a basic knowledge of copyright law. Each chapter covers a specific topic offering advice on copyright matters to those smaller publishers who do not have in-house legal counsel and cannot afford to hire outside attorneys.

Tracey Armstrong is the President and Chief Executive Officer at Copyright Clearance Center with more than 20 years of experience in rights management. Through a period of phenomenal change and challenge, she has helped transform CCC’s licensing solutions to meet the needs of today’s digital publishing world. Tracey works with publishers, authors, universities, businesses and industry associations around the world, addressing copyright concerns and establishing new alliances. She also speaks frequently on digital copyright licensing issues at industry conferences and events. Tracey holds an MBA from Northeastern University and serves on the boards of several not-for-profit organizations.

Tracey Armstrong offered the following commentary: “The transition to a digital culture has led to an abundance of published material which may be licensed for a wide variety of re-uses. Such a wealth of content often presents a daunting business challenge for publishers looking to protect intellectual property and develop successful licensing business models. Small companies in the publishing and information industries in particular will find great value in the experienced counsel Professor Gasaway provides in this Pocket Copyright Guide for Publishers.”

Iris L. Hanney, Unlimited Priorities president, responded, “Knowledge of copyright law is increasingly important as it affects all aspects of publishing and research. This has become apparent during our work with both publishers and libraries. This Guide will provide answers to the questions being raised in an ever more complex area in easy to understand language. With her wealth of copyright experience Tracey was the ideal person to provide the foreword to the Guide, and we are deeply appreciative of her contribution and support.”
