CDL Model License Revised

Publié le 27 janvier 2017, par Thérèse Hameau

CDL [California Digital Library] is pleased to announce the major upgrade of its Standard License Agreement (“Model License”). The new version reflects current best practices in licensing and incorporates feedback from UC librarians, licensing staff, attorneys, peers, and CDL colleagues. We appreciate all of their contributions, and hope that the new Model License is helpful in negotiating effectively with licensors.


The new Model License includes many updated sections to support UC researchers and authors’ needs. For example, the Text and Data Mining (TDM) section clarifies that authorized users may not only engage in text and/or data mining activities for academic research purposes but also share the results with others so long as the purpose is not to create a product for use by third parties that would substitute for the licensed materials.
