About Publishers Licensing Society
What we do
The Publishers Licensing Society Limited (PLS) provides rights management services to the publishing industry. Our primary remit is to oversee collective licensing in the UK for book, journal, magazine and website copying. We distributed £32.9million from collective licensing in 2016/17, and have more than 3,620 publishers signed up with us (2017).
Together with the Authors' Licensing and Collecting Society, we own and direct the Copyright Licensing Agency. We also work in partnership with NLA media access.
Vision, Aims and Values
Our Vision is to provide efficient and effective copyright and licensing solutions to support publishers in providing access to their content.
