This month we'll be joined by The Authors’ Licensing and Collecting Society (ALCS) to talk about money available to authors for secondary uses of their work.
ALCS is a not-for-profit organisation started by writers for the benefit of all types of writers. Owned by its members, ALCS collects money due for secondary uses of writers’ work. It is designed to support authors and their creativity, ensure they receive fair payment and see their rights are respected. It promotes and teaches the principles of copyright and campaigns for a fair deal. Representing over 100,000 members, since 1977 ALCS has paid around £500 million to writers.
John Scott from ALCS will take you through:
· The history of ALCS
· What ALCS do
· Secondary royalties
· Where the money comes from
· Joining ALCS
Please RSVP to local organiser Jane to let her know you'll be coming along.
