Publishers’ Licensing Services (PLS) provides rights management services to the publishing industry. Our mission is to provide efficient and effective copyright and licensing solutions to support publishers in providing access to their content. Our primary remit is to oversee collective licensing of secondary copying from books, journals, magazines and websites on behalf of over 4,000 publishers signed up with us. In 2020/21 we distributed more than £38.5 million from collective licensing, monies which go straight to publishers’ bottom lines. We also provide a permissions clearance service to the industry as well as guidance and leadership on best practice in rights management. See www.pls.org.uk.
