The BZ/Rights Database
For decades, BZ/Rights & Permissions, Inc. has focused on one objective – to obtain Rights Clearance/Licensing for clients at the best possible price. Our extensive database is the most comprehensive in the industry. It contains valuable information that enables you to know:
If your budget covers your project based on past history of fees charged.
What you can or can’t do with a particular property – for instance, some owners don’t allow associations with liquor, drugs, or gambling.
If a certain property is unavailable, so you don’t waste a lot of time and effort on it, or, worse, present it to a client who loves it and then can’t use it.
Alternatives that work or creative ways to get you what you want based on knowledge and experience, including what works when you have practically no time left.
Whether a song, a film, a book, or any other item is in the Public Domain.
Our database has exactly the kind of hard, accurate, specific information you need when you have a particular property in mind.
People who call BZ/Rights find our clear explanations and cost estimates to be the most helpful advice they have received (often after a series of unsatisfactory calls to others for information). Regular clients call us when they first get an idea. We provide the knowledge that keeps our clients ahead of the curve.
