Notes on changes: referring to the Academic Single Institution Licence in the following; parallel changes have been made to all the licences, though the clause numbers may vary a little.
1. Unnecessary provisions have been removed: the last clause on resolving disputes by an ‘expert’ (clause 12) has been removed as being superfluous. References to “agent” and “Publisher’s Representative” have been removed as they have, in the event, proved to be unnecessary.
2. Clause 1 Definitions now includes definitions of Learning Object, Text Mining and Virtual Learning Environment.
3. New usage rights in respect of these definitions will be found in clauses 3.2.3, 3.2.4, and 3.2.6.
