  • Subscription cost for institution is based on – no.of campus based students, distance learners and staff – does not include ‘walk-in users’data collection exercises – submission of record of digital copies made and regular audit
  • The Licence only covers published worksScanning – a record should be made of all material digitised – students are not allowed to digitise material under the licence. Also digital copies can be uploaded to VLE/intranet but NOT the open internet.
  • Websites - There is a common misconception is that if a website is free-to-view then it is free-to-use, but just because you can easily access the content doesn’t mean that you’re allowed to download, make copies, display on your whiteboard or upload to your VLE. You can use Title Search to check what’s included.Note of excluded categories – newspapers (covered by NLA licence), maps/charts (Ordnance Survey Licence), printed music (including words), and any work in which the copyright holder has expressly stipulated that permission is not granted for copying under licences issued by The Copyright Licensing Agency.
  • Obtaining permission – not always simple, so saves time and administration to have the licence.Also time and cost involved to gain permission individually can vary greatly.
  • Financial costs – Infringement is usually a civil offence and any damages would be awarded at the discretion of the court on a case-by-case basis.  Additional damages could also be awarded regarding the flagrancy of such infringement as the justice of the case may require.Damage to reputation – Any legal action is bad publicity for your organization and can affect its image, incoming investment and, even worse, future revenues.Individual officers of a company can be held responsible and employees could be personally liable for infringement in some circumstances.Evidence of infringement presented to an organization by CLA usually results in an out of court settlement or the purchase of a licence – so it is worth obtaining a licence in advance.Income received by writers, publishers and visual artists in return for the copying of their work is an important income for creators and non-compliance denies them this remuneration. CLA licences ensure that writers, visual artists and publishers receive a fair reward when their work is used so they can continue to invest their time and money in creating new content.
