Nasdaq holds the intellectual property rights to the Nasdaq Baltic market information. Thus in order to sell or re-distribute the data, real-time or delayed, a vendor must sign a Global Data Agreement with Nasdaq. The agreement must be signed and the appropriate fees and charges must be paid whether the vendor takes information directly from Nasdaq or from a third party.
A vendor that has already signed such an agreement with Nasdaq needs only to select the relevant Baltic products on the Data Feed Request form.
For real-time data dissemination, user-specific subscriber reporting and charges are required. End users do not need to sign an agreement with Nasdaq, but the vendor needs to report the real-time data subscribers to Nasdaq on a monthly basis. End users may view but not re-distribute the market data.
