CLA, the IFRRO UK RRO member, launches new Second Extract Permissions Service

The IFRRO member in the UK, The Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA), is launching a new service to allow universities to buy rights instantly online. The new ‘Second Extract Permissions Service’ enables universities to buy rights instantly when they need to copy more than is allowed under the CLA Higher Education Licence, speeding up the process and reducing administration costs. Over 100 major publishers are signed up to the service, and universities are invited to pre-register now online ahead of an August rollout at http://he.cla.co.uk/second-extract.
