NLA are pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with Bonus Copyright Access http://en.bonuscopyright.se/ allowing UK users to copy many Swedish newspapers. The agreement will also allow Bonus Copyright Access to license copying of UK content in Sweden. The agreement includes both digital and paper rights but does not at this stage cover media monitoring service suppliers.
The agreement reflects NLA’s ambition to make it simpler for UK users to use international news content. NLA has concluded similar agreements with Irish, French, Spanish, Australian and Russian licensing bodies, as well as direct publisher agreements with leading global newspapers. NLA expects to expand this coverage further in the coming months.
