Get Permission - Businesses

DALRO - Royalties for Visual Arts

Do you or your employees copy and distribute articles in your company? A quick photocopy of a magazine article? A copy and paste of an interesting news write-up about your business? Sending on clips you received from your PR company? 

Chances are you do. But did you know that if you don’t have permission from the publisher to copy and send on its work you’re infringing the copyright law? DALRO can help.

What can DALRO do for you?

A DALRO Business Licence is the ideal way to provide your organisation with easy, compliant access to third party published material.

Coverage: a single annual licence covers you and your employees for the downloading, copying, and sharing of third party material from a broad range of sources, instantly validating what may already be happening in your organisation. This greatly reduces the risk of employees infringing the Copyright Act, 98 of 1978, and ensures your organisation is meeting its legal obligations.

Communication: a DALRO Business Licence gives you the freedom and flexibility to do much more with published material. Communication of the information between employees, and with key stakeholders and clients, will be enhanced.

Reputation: if your business doesn't have the appropriate could be guilty of copyright infringement and suffer the consequences of legal action. A licence will significantly raise profile and protect the reputation of your business

DALRO also offers Transactional licences that are pay per use and cover you for both local and international content. 

Transactional Licences

Transactional licences are a pay-per-use service – a licence as acquired for use of specific sections.

This means that a specific published work will be distributed to a specific group of people at a specific time.

Ideal for once-off requirements


Business Licence (Blanket Licences)

Under a business licence, DALRO grants permission in advance to an organisation to copy from published editions it has mandates for, provided the copies comply with the terms and conditions of the licence agreement.

Ideal for organisations requiring multiple copies regularly.
