Publisher Repertoire Payment

Access Copyright will distribute this year’s Publisher Repertoire payment to eligible publisher affiliates on November 13.

As part of our efforts to support creators and publishers during COVID-19 and in recognition that Access Copyright’s royalty payments are critical and important to you, our affiliates, we have fast-tracked this payment to get it out as early as possible.

If you receive royalties from us by cheque, your payment be mailed to you on November 13.

If you receive royalties from us by direct deposit, please allow up to two business days for your payment, which will be made on November 13, to appear in your bank account.

All publisher affiliates who completed a repertoire claim by August 31 will receive a portion of this year’s payment.

This year’s payment will be based on publishing revenue reported to us for the 2018 fiscal year.
