Express Licensing – Copyright Materials

What are we looking for?

Not all the Express IP we deal with fits neatly into one of the software / healthcare tools / research reagent / image categories. For example, The Academic Phrasebank is an academic writing guide that we have made available on Click2Go and the Kindle store. We have also licensed a number of short films produced by the Granada Centre and signed a distribution deal for “Smart Pickings”, an educational book aimed at promoting science careers to primary school children.

What are the benefits to Manchester researchers?

  • copyright protection advice
  • “click-through” licensing via Click2Go (
  • commercial and academic licensing options
  • a share of revenues received
  • research impact
