Good Copyright Governance

What is the Good Copyright Governance initiative?

The Good Copyright Governance initiative recognises organisations which secure copyright licences, therefore hitting a benchmark for copyright compliance and fairly supporting Australian creators.

This is indispensable to our country’s economy. As they are being recognised and compensated for their work, content creators can indeed continue to develop the pieces organisations all around Australia use to inform their decision-making and achieve their objectives: books, specialist journals, newspaper and magazine articles, research papers, market research data and competitive analysis…

Copyright reliant industries in Australia are valued at $111.4 billion, represent 7.1% of GDP and employ over 1 million people ; representing approximately 8.7% of the Australian workforce (“The Economic Contribution of Australia’s Copyright Industries 2002-14”, Prepared for the Australian Copyright Council, 2015 PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP)

Who can display the Good Copyright Governance tick?

All Copyright Agency licensees can promote their organisation as a supporter of Australian creators by incorporating the Good Copyright Governance tick across their promotional channels.
