The Copyright Tribunal hears disputes about licences which allow works to be copied, performed or broadcast. Disputes can be about:
Any individual or licensing company can apply to the tribunal if they believe a copyright owner has unreasonably refused to grant them a licence to copy, perform or broadcast a work. The tribunal decides whether the person or company who applied (the applicant) is entitled to the licence and on what terms.
A representative (for example, a lawyer) can also apply to the tribunal on your behalf, as long as you’ve given them an authorisation to do so. You can do this by telling us in writing.
Write to us and include the following information:
