L&R Hartley Reprint Policy.
If you would like to make your own copies of L&R Hartley publications and market them yourself, why not apply for a free Reprint Licence?
There are two types of reprint licence available from L&R Hartley, the Author's Reprint Licence and a Printer's Reprint Licence.
If it is your own book that you wish to make (have printed or duplicated) and market yourself, and it has been published or beta-published by L&R Hartley, you will need to apply for a free Author's Reprint Licence.
For all other publications, a free Printer's Reprint Licence is required.
What is the difference? An Author's Reprint Licence is royalty free, whereas a Printer's Reprint Licence requires that a two percent (2% of the retail price) royalty is to be paid for each item reprinted/duplicated. This royalty is paid to the author (not the publisher)
Licences are issued free for five years.You may continue to sell the product after that time but you must not manufacture any more without applying for a licence renewal.
Almost all items in the catalogue are available at present, however, as all of our videos are in the process of being digitally re-mastered, currently only a few selected video titles are available for reprint.
In addition to purchasing or acquiring a master copy or sample of the item from our catalogue (at a price not exceeding the current catalogue-item price), you will need to purchase a personalised computer disk containing the necessary software and layouts for printing labels and colour slipcovers and jackets. (In the case of print media this computer disk includes a personalised printer-ready master of the publication). Currently these Reprint Mastering Kits are $A150.00 each. You may wish to confirm prices and availability of items by email before submitting your reprint request. In order to be fair to all Reprint Licence Holders, a licence application may be denied if there is already a Reprint Licence Holder for that particular publication in your geographical area. Reprint Mastering Kits are personalised with your name as the reprint licence holder imbedded within the text of the finished product.
New Reprint Mastering Kit Disks must be purchased after each five-year period to allow for updating of the master documents to reflect copyright renewal dates.
For ease of duplication, DVDs, CD-ROMs and Audio CDs may be supplied in an 'ISO' format which is easily recognised by most CD burning software.
