Publishers Guide to Copyright

To help publishers better understand their rights as content owners, and the licensing opportunities they hold, we have created this glossary of terms for guidance:

What is copying?

“Copying” includes the photocopying, scanning, emailing, faxing and printing out of articles, whether for your own use, or to share with a colleague or a wider distribution list.

It also includes placing articles on a multi-user resource, such as an intranet or shared drive.

Copying may happen on an occasional basis or on a frequent basis –for example as part of a regular news feed, such as that provided to a client by a PR or media monitoring agency.

NLA media access sells licences for both occasional and frequent copying, and for hardcopy and digital content.
