Just as an aside though, I worked for a private company who used CCC and
they were still sued for copyright infringement and ended up paying big
bucks (over $100,000) on a yearly basis.  CCC does not guarantee
protection.

I would check out their website for more information (www.copyright.com) but if you have any questions, I'd be happy to talk to you about it. We use the Annual Authorization Service, which is an annual lump sum payment based on the number of employees. There is no "management" required. The other types of service are more labor intensive as they are done on a per-service basis.

You may want to stipulate them in the employee count if they make their own copies. Second, if you have a large number of seminars that may include people from outside your institution and at those seminars the speakers generally distribute full text articles from their bibliographies, you may want to talk to me about the work-around on that one.
