News websites come in many shapes and sizes, from generalist newspaper sites with millions of readers to specialist journals covering a very particular area or field. This terms and conditions template has been designed to deal with the legal issues that commonly affect such websites.

Articles and artwork published on a news website will be protected by copyright, which may be owned by the publisher or a third party licensor such as a stock photography company. These terms and conditions include a standard copyright notice and a statement of ownership of copyright.  Users are granted express rights to use the copyright material. Typically, users will be permitted to view and cache web pages in a browser, and perhaps to print material from the website. The terms and conditions also include specific prohibitions relating to the copyright material. In the default version, users are prohibited from republishing, selling, renting, sub-licensing, displaying in public, commercially exploiting and redistributing that material.

In addition to the core copyright clauses, the template terms and conditions include clauses covering: the representation of different viewpoints, user content rules and licensing, warranties, liabilities and statutory disclosures.
