Why do you need a permissions specialist?

Copyright infringement can cost you and your company—in terms of time, money and reputation. Copyright should be cleared on any audio, visual, or text item used in any medium. This often-omitted step in the production process is an essential part of our services.

MRM Associates has a solid knowledge of copyright issues, and stays abreast of the ever-changing copyright landscape. We know where to go for the best images and have close working relationships with commercial photo archives, photographers, artists, museums, and government agencies.

Skilled picture researchers and permissions editors are adept at obtaining high quality material and reducing costs through effective negotiation. A professional picture researcher ensures that your project not only possesses a high level of aesthetic appeal, but also correctly conveys the meaning of your message.

As project managers, we have a solid understanding of our clients' goals and manage multiple projects, deadlines, and budgets.

Whether you are..

  • a large corporation
  • a small business
  • a government department
  • a non-profit organization
  • an advertising agency
…a permissions professional can help you.
