16 March 2017

Don't miss out—claims for 2017–18 lending rights payments for any new books, new editions, or books not previously claimed for need to be lodged by 31 March 2017.

If you are an Australian publisher or creator who published a book between 2011 and 2016 you may be eligible for lending rights payments.

Lending rights recompenses Australian creators and publishers for the loss of income through the free use of books in Australian public and educational lending libraries.

If you are eligible, your payment will be based on the estimated number of your books held in public or educational (schools, universities and TAFEs) lending libraries.

Submit your claim today through the new Lending Rights Online portal—designed to make it easy for you to register, make and track claims online.
