Controlling your flexible licence settings in PLSe
Some UK collective licences are likely to be more commercially sensitive than the
standard core blanket licences, so we have made it easy for you to amend your licence
settings via your PLSe account.
Below is a list of these flexible licences, and the controls they offer to publishers.
Document Delivery Licensing
The British Library and other organisations are licensed by the CLA to supply articles
copied from their print holdings (not including the British Library’s Legal Deposit collection).
Publishers are able to set their own fees for these licences, on a title-by-title basis, and may
exclude titles as required.
You can change your settings for these licences on your PLSe account under ‘Licence

Media Monitoring (Press Cuttings) Licensing
Media Monitoring (or Press Cuttings) organisations (MMOs) are licensed by the CLA
for the supply of copies of news and current affairs articles to their clients. Licensees
are permitted to deliver cuttings from printed magazines or journals, or links to website
articles alongside extracts or headlines up to 256 characters in length. Publishers are
able to exclude print titles separately from this licence.
As with other licences, website content operates on an opt-in basis, and publishers are
invited to opt in their free-to-view and subscription websites to the MMO Licence in PLSe.
This will ensure that Media Monitoring organisations can lawfully distribute links to your
content, and will help to ensure the future value of the MMO licence.
A further optional setting permits MMOs to supply PDFs of web pages to their clients.
