Will it sell itself?

ALCS, the Authors' Licensing and Collecting Society, has launched an experimental article syndication service. NUJ members who take up their free Associate Membership of ALCS can post articles to the ALCS website, quoting rates for their reproduction.

The ByLine project is a test-bed for the on-line syndication and sales technologies being developed by IMPRIMATUR, an industry joint standards project initiated by ALCS. Members who register with ALCS get a username and password so that they can put articles on the site themselves. Editors can then search the site by key-word.

The Freelance will carry news of similar initiatives for photographers as soon as possible. For details, see www.universalbyline.com/ on the Web.
