Copyright clearance for CoursePacks

If you wish to use materials in your CoursePack that are not available from The Case Centre’s collection, you will usually need copyright permission. This can include items from publications such as journals, magazines, newspapers and books.

We have linked with the Copyright Clearance Center to make this as straightforward as possible.

Is the Copyright Clearance Center part of The Case Centre?

No. The Copyright Clearance Centre is an external organisation. We are simply making it easy for you to use their services via CoursePack Creator. We have no control over copyright pricing or permissions, and cannot approach authors directly on your behalf.

How does it work?

When creating your CoursePack, you will have the option to add copyright materials if copyright permission is available.

You can choose to apply for copyright permission to use:

  • paper copies of the material to hand out in class
  • digital versions of the material for your students to download.

The cost for copyright permission will be added to the price of your CoursePack, so you won’t need to pay a separate amount to the Copyright Clearance Centre. We will pass on the payment.

What types of materials can I get copyright permission for?

A wide range of materials can be used with copyright permission, including extracts from journals, magazines, newspapers and books. Remember that the copyright holder may limit the amount of material you can use, or may refuse permission altogether. The Case Centre has no control over copyright pricing or permissions, and cannot approach authors directly on your behalf.

How long does it take to get copyright permission?

Our system is fast and easy to use. You will see straight away whether or not copyright permission is available, and if it is, you can add the material to your CoursePack immediately.

How much does it cost?

The cost varies depending on the material you choose. We do not add any markup. You will be able to see the price before adding the material to your CoursePack.

How do I pay the Copyright Clearance Center?

The payment is included in the overall cost of your CoursePack so you don’t need to pay a separate bill.

What if copyright permission is not granted?

There may be three potential options:

The rightsholder will not grant copyright permission in any circumstances

Or

It may be possible to contact the rightsholder directly to ask for copyright permission

Or

You could try changing your request. For example:

  • you could try asking for digital copyright permission instead of paper copyright permission, or vice versa
  • you could try asking for fewer or different pages from the copyright material.

What if I already have copyright permission for the materials I want to use in my CoursePack?

You don’t need to apply for copyright permission again. Simply add the material to your CoursePack. You will need to confirm that you have copyright permission when you upload the material.
