Publishers Licensing Society (PLS);
• has an agency agreement with the Design and Artists Copyright Society (DACS);
• has reciprocal agreements with similar organisations overseas.

About Digital Material
Paid-for Digital Material (was in CDL)
• For example, e-books, e-journals.
• Includes content taken from aggregator databases and via agent platforms.
Free-to-view website material (completely new)
• Free-to-view, but may not be free to copy (check terms and conditions).
• Remember that images are included.
Why copy from Digital Material?
• One set of terms and conditions applies across all of CLA’s repertoire –
no need to check primary licence agreements each time.
• Removes any uncertainty around unstable links for future access.
• Where a primary licence agreement is held, users are free to choose
whether to copy under this or the CLA Licence – this might be particularly
useful where’s CLA’s Ts and Cs are more favourable.
• Permits use for commercial research purposes.
• Permits the making of multiple printouts.

US scanning repertoire
• Change in CLA’s agreement with CCC (all sectors, not just HE).
• Repertoire for scanning must now be opted in, rather than automatically included
unless specifically excluded (as previously).
• Resulting gap has not been closed as expected since January.
• Next steps:
CLA working with CCC and publishers direct
CLA seeking further global mandates
support from CLA in identifying affected titles
Title Search – see next slide
CLA Title Search
• Can be a few days before re-included titles added to our database
• If the Title Search returns a ‘yes’ to scanning, you may scan; if it returns a ‘no’, you
may want to check with us.
• ‘Unidentified US publisher’ – means publisher has not opted in
• ‘Not found’
