Once your data is supplied to us, along with data from other participating organisations, it is processed by our in-house research staff. Their work involves researching and finding the correct owner of the work that has been copied, so it is important to include all the information requested. Once processed, financial distribution is now possible to the authors and creators whose works are shown to be copied.
At the completion of the data collection, we will share information on the outcome of the process with the copyright liaison person who will be encouraged to share with the rest of their team. We do this so everyone can see the contribution they have made to authors and creators, many of whom will be New Zealanders.
