Members can choose to include their content in non-statutory Copyright Agency Licence Schemes, and be eligible to receive payments from those licences, as well as being eligible to receive payments from the statutory licence schemes for education and governments.
Our membership application process invites applicants to participate in Copyright Agency Licence Schemes, as well as receiving payments from statutory licences.
Members who choose not to participate in Copyright Agency Licence Schemes are eligible to receive payments for copying and sharing in the education sector, and copying by the Commonwealth, State and Territory governments.
