Every day across the country individuals in schools, businesses and government copy excerpts from published works to obtain the valuable content they need to get their jobs done. But are you - the owners of that content - being compensated?
By registering with Access Copyright, you'll be paid whenever we find your works copied under one of our licences. Through our licensing framework, Access Copyright provides users with access to valuable content while passing the royalties on to creators - like you.

What Can Access Copyright Do For You?
At Access Copyright, we offer a variety of services designed to help our creator affiliates maximize royalty income from the secondary use of their work.
Royalty Payments to Affiliates: We manage licensing, collection of licensing fees and distribution of royalties on our affiliates' behalf so that they can focus on what they do best - creating!
As an affiliate, you will be paid royalties whenever we find your work copied under one of our licences. Information on our distribution schedule for 2013 is available here.
Payback: You will also be eligible to receive our annual Payback payment. Each year, all eligible affiliates receive a share of the Payback payment depending on how much they contributed to the repertoire of works licensed by Access Copyright.
You will be eligible for Payback as long as you affiliated with Access Copyright by the end of the previous year.
For example, if you become an affiliate of Access Copyright by December 31, 2011, you will be eligible for Payback starting in 2012.
Affiliate Outreach: Access Copyright makes sure the interests of our affiliates are heard by policy and decision makers on issues important to them, such as intellectual property.
