Whatever type of organisation you are, a CLA licence lets you copy and share information without the risk of infringing copyright.
The following is a summary of what can be copied under CLA licences:
All our licences permit the copying from books, trade and consumer magazines, journals and other periodicals plus cuttings and documents supplied by third parties
Many of our licences also allow the copying and re-use of content from digital publications
International agreements mean that licence holders can copy from books, journals and magazines published in the UK and over 30 other territories including the USA, Canada, Australia and all the major European countries
As well as photocopying, scanning and digital re-use, our licences also allow internal emailing of copies and limited storage on a secure intranet
Copies can be made of up to a chapter, entire article or 5% of the publication, whichever is the greater
Photographs, illustrations, diagrams or charts may also be copied where they are included in the body of the extract or article
SPECIFIC INCLUSIONS AND EXCLUSIONS
Although our licences permit copying from most UK titles, plus publications from 30 international territories, there are certain exceptions. If you would like to see details of specific inclusions and exclusions, please refer to the relevant lists published on the site.
