Copyright

To satisfy on-going customer demands, changing reading habits and to serve readers on a multitude of platforms, Irish publishers continue to invest in new technologies and innovative delivery methods whilst maintaining investment in quality content.  Meanwhile, as with publishers across the world, they are working to develop paid-for offers in the digital environment

At a time when the Internet is too often characterised by free, unauthorised content, it is more important than ever that effective copyright protection and enforcement exists to allow publishers to continue to invest in providing professional news content on all platforms.

NewsBrands Ireland believe the Irish legal and policy framework should ensure that the future of newspapers is not undermined by any new exceptions or by a lower level of protection of publishers’ rights.
