At the end of May we recieved an email from the Copyright Licensing Agency asking us if we need to sign up for their license - I ignored it as a shakedown along the lines of the PRS. Today we have recieved a follow up email indignantly asking why we haven't signed up yet.
Reading their website they seem to suggest that if you print a website or photocopy an article then you need a license at about £500 per year - and they want you to backdate it 6 years.
Is anyone else recieving these - anyone any experience of whether an accountancy practice needs one?
We do scan in ICAEW magazines and other ones we subscribe to and website pages will also be printed occasionaly. If it really is necessary on those criteria I would imagine nearly all businesses would need a license.
