now have a single blanket licence for multiple copying,
following a ruling by the Copyright Tribunal. Course packs
can now be created with illustrated material at a fee
of £4 per full-time student for a period of five
years. The new licence, which includes distance learners,
will be much simpler to administer and represents good
value for money.
Warwick, chief executive of Universities UK who took the
case to the Tribunal, said: "The new ruling is much
more favourable to universities on cost terms and in the
elimination of bureaucracy."
