We are the Copyright Licensing Agency and we exist to simplify copyright for content users and copyright owners.

Our mission is to help customers legally access, copy and share the published content they need, while also making sure that copyright owners are paid fair royalties for the use of their work.

What we do

For more than 30 years we’ve been providing rights and licences, as well as a growing range of services that simplify copyright by making it easier to access and re-use content.

Our range of blanket licences enable customers to copy and share extracts from published copyright content, without having to seek permission or worry about infringing copyright.

We also offer services that are revolutionising the management of content, including:

  • Our 'Check Permissions' search tool
  • The Digital Content Store for Higher Education
  • Second Extract Service
  • Licence Plus service for business, health and public sector organisations 

Find out more about our content management services.

We are non profit-making, so our revenue is distributed to our member organisations who pay royalties direct to copyright owners - authors, publishers and visual artists. Find out exactly who we represent and where the money goes.

The efficiency of our service, depth of our expertise and our innovative services make us the provider of choice for content users and copyright owners.
