The suite of tools developed by ARDITO partners have all the aim of simplifying the connection between content creators and content users, thus contributing to the creation of a lively and sustainable eCopyright digital single market and increasing the lawfully use and re-use of creative content. To do so, content users have to be aware of copyright, permissions, licenses and reuse conditions established by content creators on their content.
