Copyright: General Information


The information contained in this guide is intended to help staff and students understand how to stay copyright-compliant in the course of their work and studies at the University of Liverpool.

Please be aware that any third-party materials used by staff and students in teaching and learning and their associated systems and communication channels such as Canvas, must adhere to copyright law. The University holds the Copyright Licensing Agency's HE Licence. The CLA makes it easy for us to use other's work in our own teaching, private research and study. It has a mandate from publishers, authors and visual artists to offer collective licences on their behalf. The CLA HE Licence is intended to broaden and enrich the student learning experience, by allowing HEIs to provide wider access to copyright materials than would otherwise be possible. In parallel, it enables publishers, authors and visual artists to be remunerated for the use of their work.

Find out more in the CLA User Guidelines (PDF).

It is important to note that it is not intended that these (or any linked pages) should provide definitive legal opinion on copyright.

If you are unable to find the information you are looking for, please feel free to contact your Liaison Librarian or the Licensing Manager with your particular query.
