CLA has been aware of the need for a licensing solution for organisations that deliver training for some years. Where organisations – private or public – deliver free or paid-for training to delegates who are neither registered students at an educational establishment, nor staff, the terms of the Education or Business Licences do not apply and therefore any copies made for this purpose would be infringing. As well as the requirement to deal with current licensees who hold a licence that does not meet their needs, we are also aware of unlicensed organisations who could be targeted with a new licence specifically aimed at training.

Publishers have been responding generously to support schools and higher education institutions forced to adapt to remote teaching following closures due to COVID-19. PLS is pleased to be able to complement those individual initiatives through temporary adjustments to both the schools and HE collective licences administered by Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA). This is only possible as a result of the support and co-operation of educational publishers and the endorsement of the PLS Board.

The Digital Content Store is a workflow tool developed by CLA that helps more than 120 licensed Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to manage and automate the process of reporting use of the HE Licence.
