This page includes some general guidelines around the important issue of copyright and are provided by the Copyright Licensing Agency, one of the key sponsors of the Shine School Media Awards.
A general rule of thumb is that you should always credit the creator of the content you want to use in your magazine.
The CLA Schools Licence covers you to re-use text and images from books, magazines and journals (check the CLA’s website for excluded works); for text and images found online, the Licence covers material that has been specifically opted-in (check the CLA’s website to see which digital publishers participate).
If you use any content that is not your own original work – whether it’s text, an image, a clip or a link – you must make sure that the terms of copyright allows you to do so and you must always cite your source.
