Serving Your Copyright Permission Needs
Access Copyright provides two basic types of licences for your print and digital permission needs in Canada (excluding Quebec where licensing is managed by Copibec):
To get permission for uses that go beyond the terms of your comprehensive licence, please use our Title Search and Permissions Tool.
In sectors where a comprehensive licence is not available, Access Copyright may offer licences for one-time uses that can provide authorization to make a copy of copyright protected material for reproduction or republishing purposes. Permission must be sought in advance of any copying and payment. Payment for these licences must be made with a credit card or wire transfer before a licence will be issued.
To request permission on a publication please visit our Title Search and Permissions Tool.
For more information on our Permissions Services, please see our Frequently Asked Questions.
Access Copyright’s search tool helps our customers who are licensed under an Access Copyright licence or tariff, as well as occasional users of copyright-protected content, to discover and use the millions of works in our repertoire. To confirm if you are licensed or for further assistance, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
