Copyright Licence for Banks and Financial Institutions

In the banking and finance industry – where exchanging information about market trends, mergers and acquisitions and consumer sentiment 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 such as:

  • Hard copy and online specialist financial journals
  • Analyst, company and broker reports
  • Newspaper and magazine articles.

Our Copyright Licence for Banks and Financial Institutions gives your employees the freedom to legally copy and share third party literary content, both internal to your organisation and with your clients. 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.

  • Key publications such as the Australian Financial Review and Bloomberg suites, Platts, The Economist and Harvard Business Review
