Contracts, Copyrights and Permissions Internship
Job Title: Contracts, Copyrights and Permissions Intern
CCP Interns work closely with the CCP Assistant to register copyright for all published works with the Library of Congress as well as process all author contracts. The position is an opportunity to become familiar with, and to participate in, the tasks which go into maintaining the contractual transparency and accuracy of a major university press.
The Contracts, Copyright and Permissions Intern reports to the Contracts, Copyright and Permissions Assistant on a day-to-day basis.
Challenges and Opportunities
This job provides exposure to a dynamic area of publishing - intellectual property. Since the CCP Intern will be exposed to every stage of a book: from "birth" (author contract & third-party permissions), to publication (copyright registration, licensing, permissions, defense of its copyright, resolution of claims), to its "demise" (reversion to author), this position offers the opportunity to see how every department at this publishing house, other publishers, non-profit organizations, and authors work.
The work environment is a typical office environment with heavy computer use.
