Announcement regarding changes to coverage of NewsRoom on Westlaw services (News Corp)

Content updates

The NewsRoom product on the Thomson Reuters Westlaw platforms includes licensed news content from News Corp Australia.  

Recently, News Corp Australia has decided to enforce a 12-hour embargo on their licensed content. We have worked hard to ensure we can retain this content in our services which we have been successful in, however unfortunately we are obligated to comply with this new embargo. As a result, going forward all content produced by News Corp Australia will appear in Westlaw 12 hours after its publication. The change will take effect from 1 May 2020.  Click here to see a list of News Corp publications available in News Room. 

Please note that this change is not unique to services from Thomson Reuters, other news aggregators are similarly impacted. 

The NewsRoom subscription will continue to provide access to more than 11,000 news and business information resources including newspapers, newswires, and magazines across the world.
