About the Rights and Licensing Hub

The Rights and Licensing Hub is an initiative supported by Publishers' Licensing Services to share knowledge and encourage best practice in Rights and Licensing in all areas of the publishing industry and raise awareness of the importance of good rights management.

The information on this website was created by a group of industry rights experts in the UK that meet regularly to discuss current issues in rights and licensing and work to create more content and guidance to support others working in publishing.
