Let’s do the right thing

Every day, people copy and share printed material for a variety of reasons.

Copyright Licensing New Zealand (CLNZ) is a not-for-profit organisation that provides licences to help make copying, scanning and sharing printed works easy and legal. Revenue from licences are paid to the owners of the creative content copied under licence.
