A study found that 80% of all copies made on copy machines are from books! As a Writer and first-time publisher, back in Europe in the early 1980′s, I was thrilled when I received a my first copy-royalty cheque for $180.00 from VG WORT.
Later I found out that the same system works well in Canada under the name ACCESS COPYRIGHT. One of the benefits of being a small publisher or trade-published writer in Canada! However you must have set up a small business in Canada, if you are not with an established (not Vanity) publisher ACCESS COPYRIGHT explains on their website:
Join Access Copyright for Free
If you are a writer, publisher or visual artist, Access Copyright is an organization that believes that you should be fairly compensated when your works are copied. By becoming an affiliate of Access Copyright, you will have access to services that will help maximize royalty income for the secondary use of your works.
Benefits of Being an Access Copyright Affiliate
Royalty Payments: They ensure our affiliates are fairly compensated.
Affiliate Outreach: They make sure the interests of their affiliates are heard by policy and decision makers on important issues, such as intellectual property.
International Network: Access Copyright has reciprocal agreements with reproduction rights organizations (RROs) from around the world. When their affiliates’ works have been copied in a country with which they have an agreement, they distribute the royalties to them.
Becoming an Access Copyright affiliate is free.
In the United States, Copyright Clearance Center, short CCC, compensates publishers and creators / writers for the use of their work.
Their subsidiary RightsDirect does the same in several European Countries. German authors and publishers join VG WORT, to be precise: members of the European Union and authors who have Germany as their place of residence. - Let us know about other countries : )
