Public Lending Right Program | Author Royalties [Canada]

Public Lending Right is the right of authors to receive payment for free public use of their works in libraries.
More than 30 countries around the world have PLR programs. In some countries, payments to eligible authors are based on library lending. In other countries, payments are based on the total number of copies of each book held in libraries. In Canada, payments are based on the presence of a title in public library catalogues that are consulted during the annual PLR survey. Canada’s PLR program was established in 1986.
