If you need to use something for university purposes and your use is not covered by an exception in the Act, you will need to seek permission from the copyright owner. The Copyright Services Sharepoint site has several bespoke permissions pro formas and the Seeking Permissions guide (Staff) to assist you in seeking permission from copyright owners.
