WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
Here are steps you can take to assist us to give effect to your intentions if you want to be allocated payments for the use of your internet content under our licences.
- use any of the following phrases without qualification: ‘non commercial use’, ‘use in your organisation’, ‘all rights reserved’, ‘free copying’, ‘free for education’
- simply prohibit commercial use (this will be treated as allowing any non commercial use, such as educational and government use)
- use the word “free” without being clear about:
- what is “free”: for example, viewing, downloading one copy for personal use, downloading one copy to use in connection with teaching, and
- for whom the use is free: for example, teachers who subscribe to your loyalty program or alert service
