Rights & permissions


You might be interested in licensing content from our print or digital products. If you do wish to use text, images or any other material contained in a Macmillan product, you will need to contact us in advance.

Our Rights Department will be happy to help you with any rights or permissions queries. We receive a lot of requests to license our content, so don’t worry if you don’t receive an immediate reply but you should expect to receive a response within 6 to 8 weeks. Due to the administration involved we usually do charge a clearance fee when granting permission and the fee we offer will be determined by the intended use. Once permission is granted you will receive an invoice and a license agreement. Please note where we do grant permission this will not be valid until we are in receipt of the fee.

Before submitting your enquiry, please check the imprint page of the publication you're requesting permission for and refer to the details below for who to contact.
