Education

We know that sharing and copying resources within the learning environment is an integral teaching asset for your staff and students. This is why holding a CLNZ Education Licence is so vitally important.

Regardless of the education sector you are in, being fully-licensed gives your school or training organisation more freedom to use content to create lessons that truly come to life.

What is a CLNZ Education Licence?

It enables you to copy and scan from…

  • Books and text books
  • Newspapers and magazines* (access a full list here)
  • Periodicals and journals
  • Artistic works (such as illustrations) as published in a book

Make multiple copies…

  • Up to 10% or one chapter (whichever is greater)
  • 15 pages from a book of short stories or poetry book
  • One journal/periodical article (more if on the same subject)
  • Five articles per newspaper*
  • Pictures or illustrations out of a book

Share via…

  • Hardcopy
  • CD/DVD
  • Electronic whiteboard
  • Email
  • Intranet (via a password protected system – not a public website)

*Note: newspapers are not included in your licence if you are a commercial training organisation.

Primary and Secondary Schools

If you’re a primary or secondary school, the easiest way to find out about the type of licence you need is to visit the Get Licensed website.

Working with the New Zealand School Trustees Association (NZSTA), OneMusic and Screenrights, the Get Licensed website was developed to enable schools to make an informed decision about what level of cover they need.

There are three licences to consider – print (that’s us), music and tv/radio licences and most schools select all three.

Once you’ve worked out what type of licence you need, you can use our calculator to get a guide on how much the licences are likely to be. Each license is renewable annually and the cost depends on your roll numbers.

To purchase a licence for your school, contact NZSTA
