Every day, people copy and share printed material for a variety of reasons.
Copyright Licensing New Zealand provides licences to help make copying, scanning and sharing printed works easy and legal.
We are jointly owned by the Publishers Association of New Zealand (PANZ) and the NZ Society of Authors (NZSA), and are members of the International Federation of Reproduction Rights Organisations (IFRRO), which makes us part of a global network that represents the interests of authors and publishers form all around the world.
We are a not-for-profit organisation, and the net revenue generated from our licences is distributed to the creators of the work being copied. It's our way of helping licence-holders maximise resources, educate our future creatives and provide an income to the clever people who created the work that is being copied.

Creative Rights = Creative Reads brings the book sector together in a campaign to explain why creative rights are vital to New Zealand books and writing – and important for Aotearoa New Zealand.
