Overview:NLA media access, previously the Newspaper Licensing Agency was established by the UK national newspapers in 1996 to manage newspaper copyright collection. The NLA works on behalf of the UK's newspapers and licenses organisations to make paper and digital copies of newspaper content. The NLA currently licenses over 150,000 businesses and organisations ranging from large government bodies, plcs, and limited companies to partnerships and public relations agencies.
Keeping up to date with news and events that may affect your organisation is important and many organisations need at some time to copy and distribute press cuttings. The NLA exists to provide organisations with a simple means of obtaining a licence to copy newspaper content whilst at the same time ensuring that organisations avoid exposing themselves to copyright infringement. The NLA licence gives organisations the freedom to copy and protects them from breaching publisher's copyright. Working on behalf of the UK's newspapers the NLA provides a collective service enabling copying to be carried out simply and on standard terms.
Licenses companies to copy from national and regional newspapers in both paper and digital formats. Collects fees from licensed users for this copying and distributes fees to publishers.
