Copyright licence deal to save schools time and money

Schools are set to benefit after the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) and the Department for Education sign a three-year deal on the copyright licensing for schools.

From April 2013, the Department will manage a national CLA Schools Licence for all state maintained schools in England. Schools need this licence in order to copy materials from books, magazines and websites legally. In addition, the deal will also include a new licence from the Music Publishers Association to cover copying of items such as printed sheet music.

The move could save schools up to £6 million in total that can instead be spent on frontline school services.

Schools can find out more about the new agreement on the CLA Schools website.
