  • one whole chapter from a book
  • one whole article from a journal issue or set of conference proceedings
  • a short story or poem not exceeding 10 pages in length from an anthology
  • one law case from a volume of judicial proceedings

or 10% of any of the above, whichever is the greater


The CLA licence does not cover all countries or all publishers. In particular, please note that not all US publishers are covered.
