Copyright Licence for the Automotive Industry

In the automotive industry – where exchanging information about technological and research advances is critical – it’s easy to breach copyright laws by inadvertently copying and sharing content without permission.

Most literary works are covered by copyright. If your employees copy and share text, tables, graphs or images that were created by others, they’ll usually need permission from the copyright owner to do so. This includes content from:

  • Newspapers and magazine articles
  • Product reviews and blogs
  • Industry data and reports.

Our Copyright Licence for the Automotive Industry gives your employees the freedom to legally copy and share third party literary content. As we pay royalties to the creators whose works you reuse, you’ll foster the creation of new content which will benefit your organisation in the future.


Copy and share global content

Specifically tailored to your industry, our Copyright Licence for the Automotive Industry gives your organisation and dealer the right to copy and share hard copy and digital content* including:

  • Product reviews such as Automotive News, The Motor Report, Cars Guide, Carsales, Drive, and Go Auto
  • Other newspapers and magazines from Australia and other countries
  • Plus industry data, journals, competitive analysis, market research data, graphs, tables and more.*

We are proud to our commitment to copyright compliance”.
