This book is the first work to consider and carry out an in-depth study into the inter-relationship between the progression of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in the UK against the backdrop of a fast-developing copyright system and copyright collecting societies, in particular, the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA). This book examines the operation of copyright collecting societies, their relationship with HEIs in the UK and, within this context, the operation of CLA which exists to remunerate academic authors, amongst others, and in particular questions whether academic authors are properly remunerated by this system. The book highlights the gaps within the existing system, questions the effectiveness of copyright collecting societies in the digital era and makes recommendations for the academic author, publisher and collecting societies in an online world.

• Helps the reader understand the need for copyright collecting societies • Case study focussing on the Copyright Licensing Agency shows whether authors, publishers and artists are remunerated properly by collecting societies • Questions whether the copyright collective management system is the way forward, whether it works and if not what solutions are available
