Good Copyright Governance

Copies of newspaper articles, magazine articles, journal articles, reports, books and graphs directly benefit thousands of organisations in Australia, who use them to influence, be strategic in decision-making and achieve corporate objectives. Good Copyright Governance is ensuring that the creators of these pieces are being recognised and compensated fairly for their work.

How can my business get on board?

A Copyright Licence is a simple, cost-effective solution to ensure your organisation is practising Good Copyright Governance. It enables staff members to communicate content-rich material in real time while being confident that no one’s copyright is being infringed.*

As most literary and visual works are covered by copyright, the Copyright Agency’s Copyright Licence does the hard work for you so your business does not have to seek individual permissions from content creators.

Importantly, for every dollar received from licensees approximately 87 cents go back to our members – journalists, cartoonists, photographers, authors, academics and publishers. This enables them to keep creating new, high quality content for organisations to use in the future.
