About us

We are a not-for-profit rights management organisation that connects users with creators of content. We do this by providing licensing services on behalf of our Australian and New Zealand visual arts members so that their artworks can be reproduced in material like books, websites, advertising, merchandise, exhibition catalogues and more. As a member, we can administer the reproduction of your work in return for fair payment.

We manage international artists in Australia, as well as Australian and New Zealand artists’ work being used abroad via reciprocal agreements with 45 visual arts rights management agencies around the world.

Viscopy formed in June 1995. In July 2012, Viscopy entered into a services arrangement with the Copyright Agency to reduce costs to its members.  On November 30, Viscopy and Copyright Agency formally merged after a successful 5 year service agreement. Read more here.
