We look forward to working with all industry parties to design and implement simple and effective solutions which respect the roles of content users and publishers"
PDLN also hosted the first PDLN Connect Content Forum in Dublin with representatives from 11 leading global media monitoring businesses to debate and agree priorities for developing improved user solutions.
PDLN Connect is a program established by PDLN to develop open standards to ease the interaction in the field of international media monitoring. The PDLN Connect program includes development in connecting databases, license agreements, reporting and an electronic publication catalogue.
The Press Database and Licensing Network (PDLN) joins companies and organisations, owned or controlled by publishers, working in the field of licensing articles from newspapers and periodicals and/or providing digital articles for electronic press reviews and acting according to their national copyright regulations for the beneficial interests of the publishers.
The PDLN network aims to protect and promote the interest of publishers in the digital age in relation to press cutting and media monitoring services. Its members want to encourage the development of simple and efficient market solutions to the problems associated with international access to high quality press content and the legal secondary utilization of this content.
