Sheqafrica.com removes copy protection

Readers of Sheqafrica.com will no longer need to subscribe to copy its content. This decision was made by the board of directors of Sheqafrica Corporate Services, co-publishers of the magazine.

John Williams, one of the directors of the company, said readers must be able to use the content for educational and awareness purposes and not all readers have the ability to subscribe to the service. This motion was supported by the majority of the board and subsequently resulted in the deactivation of the copy protection on the magazine.

What it means for paying subscribers

A few readers have subscribed to the paid service, and they had the benefit of open content for a year now. There is no need to change anything in terms of subscriptions, but all future payments will be canceled and subscribers will continue to use Sheqafrica.com for free.

What it means for Sheqafrica.com

The decision will no doubt  have a negative impact on the revenue of the company, but it will continue with the publication as long as resources allow. The loss of revenue from paid subscribers will be recovered from an increase in Advertising rates for the 2020 financial year.
