NLA are pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with Kopiosto allowing Kopiosto licensed Finnish users to copy most UK newspapers and news websites. The agreement will also allow NLA to license copying of some Finnish content in UK. The agreement does not at this stage cover media monitoring service suppliers. We hope to expand the remit to MMOs in future.
The agreement reflects NLA’s ambition to make it simpler for international business users to use UK news content in the context of local licenses and services. NLA has concluded similar agreements with many international licensing businesses – see here. NLA also licenses direct rights to over 2,000 international business through its IMMO programme. NLA has added Swedish and other rights in 2016 expects to further expand international availability of UK content rights further in the coming months.
