The dispute between the Newspaper Licensing Agency and the IPR and
PRCA developed this week with a call from the Copyright Tribunal for
applications from interested parties. The tribunal is due to hear the
case brought by the PR trade bodies against the NLA in September over
what they see as the NLA’s unreasonable charges for PR agency licences
to photocopy newspaper cuttings. Any organisation or person wishing to
be made party to the proceedings should apply to the Copyright Tribunal
secretary Jill Durdin by 24 April.
