This news site is run as a news blog by an individual who finances it. This is a non commercial non profitable blog.
The purpose is a to make local news available for non commercial use.
It relies on News feeds from Councils, BBC, Police, Local Blogs, Local news.In order to add extra content and services our external links and displays are free.
As the blog is to promote local news free and is non commercial non profit making network it would not be possible to pay Press Association Commercial licence fees for content because it is not set up to make a financial gain.
A recent court case agrees commercial users can be charged for content that is resold for profit. However non commercial blogs etc would not be charged.
However it appears some press associations are getting rather greedy and are chasing private bloggers for fees if they are using some local newspaper feeds.
They appear to be using a debt collection business called Buchanan Clark & Wells of Glasgow who are sending made up charges for use of copyright material.
If you are a private blogger having the same problem I would like to hear from you.
If you are a online newspaper or press association your comments would also be welcome.
If anyone has a problem with the content of this site and wishes for any content to be remove please contact me.
