International repertoire exchange agreements with other countries permit UK licensees to copy legally from foreign books, journals and magazines both from print and digital publications.

Current international agreements permit CLA licensees to photocopy titles published in the territories listed below. Several of these territories also extend rights for scanning and for the reuse of digital publications, including some websites, depending on the type of licence you hold.

In addition, CLA has obtained global mandates direct from certain major publishers which means that their titles are covered by CLA licences whatever their country of publication.

USA – CCC

CLA’s repertoire exchange agreement with the USA’s Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) for scanning and digital copying is on an ‘opt-in’ basis. When scanning from a US print title or copying from a US digital title, please use our online search tool to check permissions.

September 2013 – We have issued an Information Note, agreed with UUK/GuildHe, to clarify how US printed works permissions are included in the CLA Higher Education Licence and explain what we are doing to resolve any outstanding issues.  Read the Information Note
