Release Update - 11th September 2020

Talis Aspire Copyright Clearance can now fully support the workflows of the CLA and ICLA COVID-19 Relaxations. Talis has prioritised this development to support this change in the ruleset. Following an evaluation of the value to our users in these unprecedented times, we felt that this is a valuable temporary addition to the service.

Full details can be found in the updated supported article:
COVID-19 Relaxation to the CLA HE Licence - Talis Aspire

The change consists of the extent override option in addition to the normal workflow:

  • Override extent up to 20% or 2 Chapters (whichever is the greater)
  • NOTE: To apply the 20% or 2 Chapters, the publisher must be on the participating list.
  • Please do take time to remind yourself of the conditions - or as you are manually overriding with your own judgement in light of the relaxations.

If you have had the need to use the relaxation prior to the full workflow being in place please do use Replace Request, so that we can now track and send the data monthly to the CLA on your behalf.

If you have any issues using the new functionality, please do raise a support case.
