Welcome to the PDLN

The Press Database and Licensing Network (PDLN) is an association representing organisations owned or controlled by publishers who license or supply newspaper, magazine and website material for media monitoring, press cutting and press review services. PDLN was founded in 2008 and has grown rapidly. It now has 25 members in 20 countries. 

PDLN aims to protect and promote the interest of publishers in media monitoring services. Its members seek to encourage the development of simple, efficient market solutions to the supply and use of press information internationally. PDLN works to share best practice in licensing and supply and to create forums for content owners and users to come together to solve the challenges of improving these services.

2015 Conference in Zurich

Thank you to everyone who attended the PDLN Conference in Zurich 'Media Monitoring in the Global Village'. We heard a number of interesting presentations including ProLitteris, who explained how MMO licensing has developed in Switzerland. We also heard from the leading local newspaper NZZ on paywall developments,  Jeremy Thompson, President of AMEC and Florian Lazlo, General Sectretary of FIBEP.

We would especially like to thank the hosts Swissdox, the sponsors Ninestars and all of our speakers. We look forward to seeing everyone next year in Rome!
