Review of the new CLA Higher Education Licence (Open Day, 24th Oct 2013)

  1. 1. Review of the new CLA Higher Education Licence Open Day - Talis Aspire Digitised Content 24 October 2013 Sarah Brear Development Manager – Higher and Further Education This presentation © 2013 by The Copyright Licensing Agency Ltd. All Rights Reserved. It is hoped that this presentation provides a helpful overview to the copyright and the use of copyright material. It is not intended to constitute legal advice and should not be relied on as such.
  2. 2. Summary • New rights and repertoire • Digital Material • Other things to note • Managing and reporting Digital Copies • US scanning repertoire • CLA Title Search • New CLA HE website
  3. 3. CLA – a refresher CLA: • is a licensing body as defined by the CDPA, with a legal mandate to perform collective licensing on behalf of copyright owners; • is owned by the Authors Licensing and Collecting Society (ALCS) and the Publishers Licensing Society (PLS); • has an agency agreement with the Design and Artists Copyright Society (DACS); • has reciprocal agreements with similar organisations overseas.
  4. 4. … all of which mean that CLA is authorised to license still text and images from material published in the UK and many overseas territories.
  5. 5. New rights and repertoire Photocopying and scanning from print material Copying and re-use of paid-for digital material (NB Comprehensive Licence) Copying and re-use of free-to-view website content As before ‘Digital Material’
  6. 6. 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.
  7. 7. 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.
  8. 8. Other things to note • New arrangements for reporting/managing Digital Copies. • Way forward needed on some points (discussions with UUK/GuildHE): - Overseas students Collection of NCB data Reporting of disembedded images Works that become excluded during a Course of Study Extent limits
  9. 9. Reporting and managing Digital Copies • Need for accurate distribution but also publisher concerns. • For 2013/14 – continue as previously • From 2014/15 – new arrangements • From print (i.e. scans) or paid-for digital – via reporting spreadsheet • From free-to-view website content – if your HEI is selected for a Data Collection Exercise (survey), via our web-logging tool – to be piloted. • Full guide - Guide to Managing and Reporting Digital Copies.
  10. 10. 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 amnesty support from CLA in identifying affected titles webinars Title Search – see next slide
  11. 11. CLA Title Search • Messaging • 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’ • Webinars
  12. 12. New HE website • • • • User Guidelines One-page notice Guide to Managing and Reporting Digital Copies Role-specific guidance
