Text and Data Mining (TDM) Licensing

CLA will launch a new Text and Data Mining (TDM) licence later in 2024.

The licence will cover a range of TDM uses, but not generative AI, and has received strong support from publishers and CLA’s member organisations. CLA is currently working with PLS to seek opt-ins from publishers.

AI Licensing

CLA is currently exploring potential AI licensing solutions with its Member organisations. These include a licence for internal use of AI tools by CLA’s existing customers in the business and public sector, where publications are likely to be used as prompts and in fine-tuning on local datasets.

CLA is also consulting with Members on the scope and limitations of a Generative AI Training licence in line with CLA’s Principles for Copyright and Generative AI, published on the CLA website.
