Your licence comes with valuable website republishing rights so you can post published articles and reviews from publications on your own website and benefit from the publicity of positive press and reviews or support your new product launch to give your business a boost. Your licence allows you to post up to five articles (at any one time) per year on your own website from participating print magazines and publisher websites.
The licence fee is generally calculated according to the size of a company measured by the number of employees and the type of company with reference to the Standard Industry Classification (SIC) as categorised by the government Office for National Statistics. Businesses employing up to 50 employees are subject to a flat annual fee based on the total employees of the business. The annual fee for businesses with 1-10 total employees is £158.82 + VAT The annual fee for businesses with 11-50 total employees is £543.11 + VAT Rates for Businesses with 51 or more total employees are charged per professional employee and the SIC code of the main business activity. Your licence provides cover to all employees but your Professional Employee figure (see below) more fairly represents the number of employees most likely to copy and share licensed material.

However, if the person who normally deals with your licence changes, you should let us know as soon as possible by contacting us.

Your Media Monitoring Agency is covered under their CLA licence to send clippings to you, their clients. Under their licence, one person can receive a clipping, view it once, and print and retain a hard copy. If you wish to have multiple user access or make multiple copies of media clippings this will require your business to hold your own CLA licence. A licence is required if electronic/web clippings are accessed more than once, or by more than one employee, or if additional copies are made, forwarded, or digitally stored from clippings received electronically or in hard copy.
