According to the 2020 Information Seeking and Consumption Study by Outsell, Inc, business professionals share information an average of 16.5 times a week with nine other people. Collaboration across teams drives innovation and fosters better decision making, yet 47% of professionals recently surveyed are either unaware of their organization's copyright policy or unsure of its details. Organizations that rely on the efficient exchange of information face the challenge of making the published content they acquire accessible to the people who need it while respecting intellectual property rights and protecting the reputation of their brand by minimizing the potential for unlicensed sharing.
