NLA media access is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with Austrian licensing body Literar-Mechana allowing them to license Austrian users to copy most UK newspapers and news websites. The agreement does not at this stage cover media monitoring service suppliers. We hope to expand the remit to MMOs in future.
The agreement is a further step forward towards realising 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 businesses through its IMMO programme. NLA has added French, Finnish and Swedish agreements in 2016 and expects to further expand international availability of UK content rights.
