Opinion: Letters of the Week - The NLA has not committed to reasonable price rises in future

Regarding 'Newspaper Licensing Agency launches code of conduct', (prweek.com/uk, 7 August) - that it has taken the NLA four years to develop a code of conduct is evidence of a lack of commitment to changing the culture.

The proposed code is further evidence of committing to the bare minimum to avoid regulation. As a monopoly the NLA has a duty of care to its licencees yet there is no commitment to ensuring future price increases are reasonable.

I see no reason why the industry will not be forced back to the Copyright Tribunal when the current licence rates expire.
