You need permission for all these types of use – and other uses as well – because they’re for professional purposes.
Get permission to use the articles or book excerpts you want, exactly when you need them. If you reproduce or share excerpts from copyright-protected content on a one-time basis, this is the solution for you. The cost is calculated according to the type of use and is billed immediately.
Copibec offers media monitoring firms, their customers and any other businesses, public, private or governmental organization a licence for compiling and distributing press reviews. A comprehensive licence gives you the convenience of not having to get permission each time.
Paper format press reviews: The Copibec repertoire (or catalogue) includes most newspapers, magazines and periodicals published in Quebec, the rest of Canada and in about 30 other countries (United States, United Kingdom, France, etc.).
Digital format press reviews: The Copibec repertoire includes the newspapers published by Postmedia Network (such as the National Post, Montreal Gazette, Ottawa Citizen and Toronto Sun) as well as many Canadian and foreign magazines.
Please note that certain other Quebec publications are represented by other organizations for digital reproduction purposes. For La Presse, Le Devoir, Le Soleil, La Tribune, Le Quotidien and Les Affaires, contact CEDROM-SNi. For the Journal de Montréal and Journal de Québec, contact Média QMI.
Press reviews can be on paper or in digital format. They can be uploaded to a password-protected network and made available to a predetermined number of persons.
Press reviews can be archived for up to 30 days.
If you receive a press review from a media monitoring service, make sure the applicable royalties have been paid. Many of those firms have agreements with Copibec. You can check our licensee list to see if your media monitoring service is included.
Permission may be required even for a list of links leading to media articles on the sites of the various newspapers.
In general, the copyright notices on the sites of the individual newspapers and magazines explain what is or is not allowed. Many publishers do not authorize their sites to be used, their content to be reproduced or hyperlinks to be inserted for commercial purposes.
You can be confident that the licences issued by Copibec allow links to be inserted and allow users to access articles through those links.
