Printed material

If you wish to use material published in books and journals that falls within the scope of the economic rights but not one of the exceptions to copyright, in some cases a licence may be offered by a collective licensing body:

If you are unhappy about the terms and conditions offered by a collective licensing body, you may be able to seek independent adjudication on the matter from the Copyright Tribunal.

If you wish to use published material and there is no collective licensing, you may be able to get a licence from the copyright owner and one of the above organisations.

You can also search the WATCH External Link database or the records of the United States Copyright Office External Link to help you locate the copyright owner.
