Access Copyright’s Distribution Fact Finding Study

In addition to the launch of the Public Domain Registry project, Access Copyright has also announced plans to study its distribution system.  The Creators' Copyright Coalition reports:

"Access Copyright' s newly announced fact-finding process is a response to a proposal several creator organizations made to the agency last summer. The creator organizations have argued that Access Copyright' s distribution of royalties need to be made with more attention to collective-licensing principles, more transparency, and more precision in linking payments to exposure to copying. These claims upon the agencies are not new. In recent years Access Copyright' s lack of action on them has been threatening the confidence of creators and their organizations in the work of the collective."
