Copyright Licence for Medical Device Companies

In the medical device industry – where exchanging information about the latest medical and scientific 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:

  • Journal articles
  • Clinical and research papers
  • Newspaper and magazine articles.

Our Copyright Licence for Medical Device Companies 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 Medical Device Companies gives you the right to copy and share hard copy and digital content*, including:

  • Key pharmaceutical journals from publishers such as Elsevier, Wiley-Blackwell and Wolters Kluwer
  • Newspapers and magazines from around the world
  • Plus graphs, tables, research papers, market research data, competitive analysis and more.*
