The British Copyright Council was founded in 1965 to protect and promote the principles of copyright in the UK.

We aim to to provide an effective, authoritative and representative voice for the copyright community, and to encourage greater understanding and acceptance of copyright in the UK and around the world.

We monitor changes in law, social practices and technology that may affect copyright and related rights, consulting with our members and working closely with the British Government and international groups on current issues and policies.

This website is a resource for organisations that represent creators, performers and other rights holders, or manage rights for creative material. You'll find latest copyright-related news, policy information and details of upcoming events.
