1 The Copyright Licensing Agency SchoolsData Gathering Exercise
2 The Copyright Licensing Agency Who is CLA?The Copyright Licensing Agency is a non profit-making company set up by authors and publishers to license the copying of their works.What does CLA do?We facilitate access to copyright materials, represent the rights of authors, artists and publishers and protect the value of their creativity. Our licences provide access to books, journals, magazines, law reports and more.Why is the CLA here?We carry out Data Collection exercises, which are a means of identifying the authors, artists and publishers whose works are being copied so that we can distribute licence fee monies to them.
3 Data Collection in Schools Schools are licensed by CLA to copy and re-use copyright material. This means that whenever staff wish to carry out such an activity, they can do so legally.Without the licence, permission would need to be obtained by the rights holder each time you wanted to copy or re-use material.Schools are obliged to cooperate with these data collections by the Terms and Conditions of their Licence.Without the help from schools taking part in the data collection exercise we would not be able to reward the authors and publishers whose work is being copied.
4 Data Collection Exercise Two simple procedures:If you photocopy or scan from a book, journal or magazineSimply make a copy of the ISBN page (title page is ISBN not available)Complete a label: was it photocopied or scanned and how many sets?Attach the label to the ISBN page place in the yellow box beside the copier.If you re-use material from a website or digital works (e-book, e-journal, e-magazine)Enter the web logging site set up for your schoolPaste in the website address used or the ISBN (digital material)Tick a box to say how it was used and for how many pupilsClick submit.
