About Screenrights and APRA/AMCOS

Screenrights is the trading name of the Audio-Visual Copyright Society Limited, a non-profit copyright collecting society for producers, distributors, script writers, music copyright owners, rights owners in artistic works and sound recording, and other rights owners in film.

The Australasian Performing Association (APRA) is the non-profit association that collects and distributes Australian and New Zealand copyright royalties for music creators and publishers from around the world. APRA manages the reproduction rights business of its sister collecting society, Australian Mechanical Copyrights Owners’ Society (AMCOS). On behalf of its members, AMCOS grants licences for the reproduction of musical works. This involves collecting royalties from independent record companies, film-makers, educational institutions and others who record or reproduce music in some form.
