Educational Statutory Licences

The University has statutory licences which allow us to copy and communicate certain material because of our status as an “educational institution”.

In order to rely on the licence the University has remuneration agreements with the declared collecting societies and we are required to pay an annual licence fee.

This licence may be relied on for teaching purposes provided the following conditions are met:

  • the copying or communication is undertaken for students of the University of Adelaide.
  • the students are enrolled in an award based course (that is, these licences do not cover developmental courses or courses delivered on a consultancy basis).
  • the material copied or communicated is for educational purposes (includes making available in the library for reference).
  • the copying is within the limits (set out in more detail below).
  • the copies must not be sold for a profit (but cost-recovery is allowed).
