The NLA team is delighted to announce that we have reached an agreement to work with PA (the Press Association), the national news agency for the UK and Ireland. This valuable new partnership, which launched on 1st October, ensures content published by PA newswires and used by media monitoring organisations and end users is all covered within the NLA’s licensing frameworks. From now on, when PA content is copied by MMOs and sent to end-users their activities will be covered by an NLA licence.
When taken alongside agreements with both Reuters and Alliance News, signing up PA to the NLA roster is a demonstration of the reach we now have across newswires. While newspapers remain the core of our business, we are striving hard to extend our offering to all branches of the media - including newswires, new magazine publishers, born digital and broadcast. This comes at the same time Andrew Hughes and team continue to expand our international coverage, recently agreeing digital rights agreements in Portugal and Finland.
We’re delighted to be working with PA, one of the most recognised UK media brands, continuing our work to provide a comprehensive, simple and fair licensing regime for providers and users alike.
