Copycats beware

24th March 2000 at 00:00
On April 1, arrangements come into place to cover the photocopying of copyright material in primary schools. From that date, the Copyright Licensing Agency, the non-profit-making body whichcollects fees and distributes them to authors and publishers, will calculate its standard licence fee at the rate of 53p per pupil.

However, this does not include enlargements or transparencies for overhead projectors, for whichseparae permission has always been necessary. The CLA has introduced fees for enlargements (25p each) and transparencies (pound;1.25 each) - but only when the materials are used for the literacy hour. (If you want to make enlarged photo-copies to teach history, you still need permission.) Schools will keep count of how many copies they make, and pay the CLA at the end of the year.

Queries to the CLA, tel: 020 7436 5931.
