WTS follows the Copyright Law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) which governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material.  We cannot advise our clients on their obligations under copyright law, so you may wish to consult your company's legal counsel if you have questions. WTS gives clients the option of assuming responsibility for compliance; however, please note that in many cases, WTS cannot obtain materials unless we pay copyright royalties to the rightsholder. Please note that copyright royalties are set by individual publishers, not by WTS, and costs can vary greatly (usually between $40 and $75 per article, but sometimes more).


It is difficult to to estimate the total cost of an order as copyright and/or referral fees vary widely.  If you’re concerned about cost, WTS recommends specifying a maximum cost per article, e.g.  $60 max, on our order form.  Staff will contact you if the costs will exceed your limit.  Please note the average prices for articles in the table above when considering your maxcostHaving a low maxcost may delay delivery.
