Wall Street Journal Revises Policy on Approving Employees’ Books

Dow Jones, the parent company of the Wall Street Journal, recently announced that it is revising its policy on books written by Wall Street Journal employees. WSJ employees currently need to inform senior editors about their book projects at early stages. However, the policy revision now requires employees to seek permission much earlier in the process, such as corresponding with literary agents about potential projects. In addition, employees will have to enter into a licensing agreement to use their reporting in their books.
