Do you need a licence?

Every day, businesses use newspaper and magazine content for a wide variety of reasons – sharing relevant information with colleagues or clients, monitoring competitor activity, analysing market activity or simply keeping up to date with media news.

All this activity, however, requires permission – and that permission comes in the form of an NLI licence. If you aren’t sure whether or not your organisation needs a licence from NLI, consider the following questions:

  • Do you (or your colleagues) circulate newspaper and magazine articles internally?
  • Does your business have an intranet that hosts newspaper or magazine content?
  • Do you scan the media and keep/distribute articles or interest?
  • Have you engaged the services of a Media Monitoring Organisation (MMO) to scan the media for articles of interest?
  • Do you have a Public Relations agency that supplies you with press clippings or other media content?
  • Do you ever scan articles and post them to your website?
  • Do you scan, copy or index news media content and send it to clients?

IF THE ANSWER TO ANY OF THESE QUESTIONS IS ‘YES’ THEN IT IS LIKELY YOU NEED A LICENCE FROM NLI.

NLI provides a simple, straightforward and cost-effective licensing model that caters for all business and organisation types and that allows you to access and use newspaper/magazine content in compliance with copyright law.
