plr objectives

PLR has a set of core objectives aimed at meeting its statutory functions as set out in the PLR Act (1979) and Scheme (1982). Since October 2013 PLR has been the responsibility of the British Library Board and the following PLR objectives form part of the Library’s wider plans:

  • Complete PLR's annual author payment calculation and distribution cycle by 28 February 2015 and keep 2014-15 running costs below the £756,000 cap set by DCMS.
  • Complete transfer of PLR responsibilities to the British Library.
  • Implement government decision to extend PLR to loans of audio-books and on-site downloads of ebooks following anticipated parliamentary approval on 1 July 2014.
