Newspaper Licensing Ireland

We are a rights management organisation that facilitates the commercial use of newspaper, magazine, and digital content

Who we are

NLI is a rights management organisation established in 2002. We facilitate the commercial use of newspaper and magazine content. We deliver simple, low-cost solutions that permit companies to access, copy and share press content while ensuring that the rights of the copyright holders – the publishers – are respected.

We offer a range of licences to suit a variety of different purposes. The vast majority of Irish publishers are members of NLI so our portfolio includes all of Ireland’s national newspapers, a large selection of regional press and a comprehensive range of magazines. We cover both print and online editions.

Our mandate enables us to protect original news content and provide a framework within which we can all legitimately use and benefit from this wealth of information.

Information for Publishers

NLI operates as a rights management entity offering licensing solutions that enable companies and organisations to access and use copyright content, while ensuring the rights of publishers are respected and that they receive a fair remuneration for the use of their content.

Understanding Copyright

NLI aims to ensure a fair remuneration for those who have invested in the generation of original news content, i.e. the publisher, when that content is used by others.

Members & Publications

The NLI licence framework is particularly effective because the vast majority of Irish publishers have committed their publications to our licence mechanism.
