Payback for Writers and Payback for Visual Artists
Access Copyright will be distributing this year's Payback payment to our creator affiliates in mid- to late-November.
If you are receiving this year's payment by direct deposit, please leave up to five business days for your bank to process the payment. If you are receiving your payment by cheque, please allow up to two weeks for Canada Post to deliver it.
All creators affiliated with Access Copyright as of December 31, 2012 will be receiving a Payback payment this year. All creators will receive the base payment and all those who submitted a Payback claim in the past four years will receive the supplementary payment.
The supplementary payment is based on the three factors:
- The genre of works you have published (books, magazines, journals and newspapers)
- How much you have published
- When you have published (this year's supplementary payment will be based on works published between 1992 and 2011. Statistical analysis has shown that works published between these years are most likely to be copied)
More information on this year's payment can be found in our Frequently Asked Questions piece.
Additionally, you can email us anytime with your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
