Affiliation Agreement Update

Signing the new affiliation agreement is easy. All you need to do is download a copy (French) of the new agreement, sign it and send it back to us by email (affiliates@accesscopyright.ca) or fax (416-868-1621).

Access Copyright’s licensing offerings are rooted in the grants of rights we receive from creators and publishers. As our customers have used technology to copy and share content in new ways we’ve updated our offerings accordingly to maintain value for customers and rightsholders alike.

In anticipation of continued innovation and shifting modes of content usage Access Copyright is introducing an updated Publisher Affiliation Agreement featuring a single, consolidated grant of rights and a technologically-neutral definition of copying. Adoption of this new agreement by September 8 will help ensure Access Copyright’s ongoing ability to adapt to the needs of the customers we serve on your behalf. 

Updating your agreement by September 8 clearly signals your expectation that rightsholders be rewarded when portions of their works are copied, regardless of the technology that was used to create the copies. This new Publisher Affiliation Agreement complements a new Creator Affiliation Agreement that was rolled out in April 2015.
