208 Licensing schemes and licensing bodies

A ‘licensing scheme’ is defined by the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 as a scheme setting out the classes of case in which the operator of the scheme or the person on whose behalf the operator acts is willing to grant copyright licences and the terms on which these licences would be granted1. A ‘licensing body’ means a society or other organisation which has as its main object or one of its main objects the negotiation or granting of copyright licences as owner or prospective owner or as the agent of the owner2.
