Are you keen to learn more about collective licensing? Are you new to the licensing aspects of publishing or would like a refresher? In 2017/18 PLS distributed over £34 million to publishers in the UK through collective licensing. Is your organisation making the most of collective licensing? PLS is offering a free two-hour seminar at Publishing Scotland's office in Edinburgh on 27 February, the morning after the Scottish Book Trade Conference 2019.

The seminar will cover

  • What collective licensing is and how it works in the digital age
  • Who collects licensing revenue and how it gets to publishers
  • How to ensure you get the most from collective licensing
  • How you can manage your online account most effectively
  • Other services that PLS offers to help your organisation

Who is this seminar for?

This seminar is for publishers from all sectors and any other organisation whose business might include publishing content, including those recently signed up with PLS for collective licensing, individuals new to a role that includes responsibility for collective licensing; and those who would like a refresher on how collective licensing works.

What attendees have said

"The PLS introductory sessions were informative, I wish I had attended earlier."

"As an introductory session it was enlightening. It raises lots of questions for us as publishers to address."

How much does it cost?

The seminar is free to attend. For more information and to book, see the PLS website.
