There are various discounts in place for registered charities.
Charities with a headcount of five or fewer staff or a turnover less than £250k receive a free licence for all occasional copying. All other charities that pay for a licence receive a discount of £181 for all newspaper copying.
Further discounts are available to charities who want to place newspaper content on their corporate website. This is a flat fee equivalent to £158.
Charities that require the Web End User Licence for the receipt of online content as part of a paid for service receive a discount of £78 on any fixed fee.
The cumulative total for all charity discounts is £434.
This provides cover for the occasional copying of both the printed and online versions of the national newspapers plus any five regional newspapers and is calculated on either your number of staff or your organisation’s annual turnover. The fee payable is the lower of the two amounts.
You can extend the basic licence to cover additional regional newspapers, magazines, specialist publications and foreign newspapers that are members of NLA media access.
The basic element for the magazine only licence is dependent on the number of titles you require cover for and is calculated in the same way as the above.
This is for regular copying and distribution of articles within your organisation, including content supplied by a third party such as a public relations consultancy or media monitoring organisation.
There is a paper and three digital options that you would need to include with your basic licence if you frequently copy content.
Frequent paper copying is photocopying a predetermined number of copies of each article and frequently photocopying or printing articles supplied by a third party. This is calculated on a price per copy basis and is in addition to your basic licence fee.
The frequent digital copying fees are in addition to your basic licence fee and include cover for (but not limited to):
The three options available for frequent digital copying are:
The Variable option, suitable for most, is calculated on a price per copy basis.
The Fixed option is suitable for organisations wanting to make content available to a select number of staff. By limiting circulation to a defined group, your organisation can control costs. The fee is calculated on how many staff have access to the content.
The Universal option is designed to allow unlimited access for everyone and is calculated on how many staff you have within your organisation.
This covers those organisations that have copied prior to taking out a licence. This is a one-off charge and is generally calculated by multiplying your current annual licence fee by the duration of past copying.
