Hard Times for Meltwater media monitoring

March 18, 2010 at 10:08 pm 1 comment

The Internet is all abuzz at the moment as the battle lines between media monitoring group Meltwater and Rupert Murdoch become clearer, with the media mogul’s UK flagship the Times Online now blocking Meltwater from indexing Times Online content.

Blog site paidContent:UK broke the story and, as ever, does a thorough write-up on the facts. They report how the Newspaper Licensing Agency (NLA), owned by the major UK publishers, recently introduced a licensing system allowing online access to member sites to those companies signing up for the online use license.

With Meltwater being the only non-NLA compliant agency, and now this action from Murdoch’s News International, it is shaping up to be an interesting year for copyright as the publishing industry adapts to the changes in the online marketplace.
