Tell us what you copy

Copyright is important to creators like writers, artists and publishers, as it provides them with a legal right of ownership over the work that they have produced. It means that they are able to make a fair living from their work and can enjoy full-time careers in the creative industries.

We need you to tell us what you copy so that we can pay royalties to the creators and publishers. In this way, we can support the creative industries and ensure that the valuable content you use every day continues to be produced.

We collect copying information through Royalties Data Exercises. We select a number of licensees, from across a range of licensed sectors, to take part in these exercises throughout the year. Over the years, we have developed a number of methods for you to submit this information to us, making it as easy as possible for you to tell us what you copy.
