People who create material published in newspapers and magazines – such as articles, opinion pieces and cartoons – can be entitled to payments from Copyright Agency.
This will depend on the arrangements with the publisher in each case.
|Work created by you as||Licence fees allocated for||Provided|
|Freelancer||Any use of your work||You have not assigned the entitlement to claim to the publisher (check your contract)|
|Employee of newspaper or magazine||
||You have not assigned the entitlement to claim for these uses to your employer (check your employment contract)|
If a work was created by you as part of your job as an employee of another type of business (e.g. a wire service, or a broadcaster), it is unlikely you are entitled to payments from us, unless there is a special provision in your employment contract.
