Copyright licensing bodies are organisations which are authorised by copyright owners to grant, on their behalf, licences to users of copyright works.
The Copyright Ordinance (Cap.528) provides for a voluntary registration scheme for copyright licensing bodies. The scheme aims to enhance the transparency of these bodies by requiring registered licensing bodies to make available to the public essential information such as scales of royalty charges for different uses.
