Notes

Some distributions are from a single licence sector. Others combine licence fees from multiple licence sectors (‘multi-source’).

The data available for distribution varies. In some cases there are comprehensive records of usage under the licence. In others, there are surveys of usage in a sample of licensees. In other cases again we use data indicating content available for use under the licence.

For previous distributions, see Previous Distribution Schedules. For previous years, please contact Member Services by email memberservices@copyright.com.au
