HRC at UT Austen: The WATCH File
WATCH: Writers, Artists, and their Copyright Holders
The WATCH file a well-done database to be used for locating copyright holders and requesting permissions. The Harry Ransom Center of the University of Texas at Austen and Reading University Library have worked together to make it all happen. Besides the database, there is a bit of useful information about U.K. copyright, and some very good links to online resources on copyright.
