Licensing & Syndication

With worldwide licences active across the globe, our brands offer the largest classic and modern motorcycle media content in Europe. Our brands have proven appeal to international readers.

We aim to build strong and effective strategic partnerships, delivering new audience and revenue opportunities for our partners.

You can access Mortons Media Group content through syndication, by searching individual articles and features from across our portfolio.

Local Language Licensing

There is an international appeal to Mortons’ magazines and one-off editions, and this means nearly all products in the range are ideal candidates for local language licensing.

The process is a simple one: Mortons and the proposed licencing partner agree terms and an arrangement is created so the licensing partner receives the necessary material for each issue. The licensing partner then translates the words for its own market using Mortons’ design template.

Local Language Syndication

Rather than licensing a complete magazine, you may prefer to select individual articles or features to publish in an alternative language: for this we offer a syndication agreement.

Once a price for the content is agreed, Mortons’ will supply the required material which can then be translated for re-publication in a different magazine or via an alternative platform.

If you’d like to learn more about the licensing & sydication of Mortons’ publications, please contact circulation manager Steve O’Hara who will be happy to provide further details.
