Copyright Licence for PR, Advertising and Marketing Agencies

In the PR, Advertising and Marketing sector – where informing clients and tracking the success of publicity campaigns 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 magazines
  • Online news websites
  • Industry journals.

Our Copyright Licence for PR, Advertising and MarketingAgencies gives your employees the freedom to legally copy and share third party literary content, both internal to your agency 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 agency in the future.
