APRA AMCOS stands for the Australasian Performing Right Association Ltd and the Australasian Mechanical Copyright Owners Society Ltd, who together are responsible for the non-profit collection and distribution of songwriting royalties to approximately 87,000 songwriter, composer and music publisher members, and around 3,000,000 copyright owners worldwide.
We’re here for the music. We help music creators get paid for their work and give music users easy ways to legally play and copy what they like. Royalties keep the music coming and ensure the industry’s future. And that’s what we all want to hear.
Before 1997, we used to be two separate organisations. In response to feedback from music creators and music customers that they’d rather deal with one organisation, in 1997, APRA and AMCOS formed an alliance that would allow us to deliver a one-stop service to music creators and music customers.
