When you buy a Copyright Agency pay-per-use licence on the RightsPortal, you are buying the rights to use and share copyright material.
For example, a pay-per-use licence can provide you with permission to copy a newspaper or journal article for sharing with others via your website, intranet, or in a presentation to clients.
Under Australian copyright law, a licence is required for most uses of copyright-protected content. Copyright Agency licence terms and conditions are based on the type and duration of use.
Note: a pay-per-use licence does not provide you with access to content or copies of articles. To obtain access to or copy of an article, you will need to contact the publisher directly. If you already have the content you can use it under the terms and conditions of the pay-per-use licence you have purchased. For more details see the section Does Copyright Agency provide content?
