Copyright New Zealand

Let's do the right thing.

Copyright Licensing New Zealand (CLNZ) helps make creative rights work for all New Zealanders.

CLNZ plays a key role in making creative rights valuable assets for all New Zealanders, be they rightsholders like authors, publishers and artists, or users such as educators, students and businesses.

We enable New Zealand’s creative people to record and manage their copyright, as well as package the copyright in such a way that users can access the work through a simple licence.
