Copyright payments coming your way – update your details

The Copyright Agency is reminding publishers to make sure their details are up-to-date before it makes its mid-year payments.

The Copyright Agency collects fees and distributes royalties to “creator members” for the reuse of text and images.

The agency said that the middle of the year is its busiest time for making payments to journalists, publishers, educational research writers, and visual artists. The copyright fees come from a variety of sources including schools, universities, private colleges, TAFEs, state and federal governments, and businesses.

Publisher members include publishers of magazines, technical works, academic works, scholarly journals, fiction, poetry, newspapers and textbooks.
