Under the terms of the CLA licence, the limitations permitted under fair dealing are:

  • one article from an issue of a journal
  • up to one chapter or 10%, whichever is greater, of a book
  • one poem or short story of up to ten pages from an anthology
  • one whole scene from a play
  • one whole paper from a set of conference proceedings
  • one whole report of a single case from a volume of judicial proceedings
  • or 10% of the total publication, whichever is the greater  
  • where a digital publication is not organised in a similar way to conventional printed items, you are advised to exercise your best judgement to copy reasonable extracts.

The blanket licence does not cover certain excluded categories such as some specifically identified publications; material produced by non-participating publishers; printed music; maps; separate illustrations and photographs. A list of these exclusions is available on the CLA's web site
