The School Reproduction Agreement gives teachers, pupils and children the legal right to copy and share copyrighted material for teaching. Agreement is necessary to download, print, scan, copy in a copier etc.
All universities and higher education institutions in Sweden have agreements with Bonus Copyright Access. The agreement gives teachers and students the right to make copies and share copyright protected material for educational purposes.
A workplace licence from Bonus Copyright Access enables employees at Swedish workplaces to copy and disseminate copyright protected material for internal information within the organization and for internal training.
Collective management of rights is the foundation of Bonus Copyright Access's operation. In order to simplify the licensing process, there are provisions – extended collective licence provisions – in the Swedish Copyright Act.
Copyright protection ensures that right holders as writers, photographers, composers and publishers get paid when there works are reused and shared. The remuneration makes it possible to re-invest in creative processes.
The extended collective licence system (ECL) is a typical Nordic way of finding copyright solutions to otherwise difficult situations where it is not feasible to obtain individual authorizations from all rights holders.
Bonus Copyright Access is a member of IFRRO – International Federation of Reproduction Rights Organisations. IFRRO is the main international network of collective management organizations and creators’ and publishers’ associations in the text and image spheres.
