Since 1926 APRA (the Australasian Performing Right Association) has been making life a little easier for songwriters, composers and music users. New Zealand copyright law makes songwriters and composers the exclusive owners of their original music and lyrics. Nobody else can use their work without getting their permission first, and if necessary, paying a royalty for this use. This is where APRA steps in. APRA is a not-for-profit organisation that collects royalties on behalf of its 44,000+ members including over 5,000 New Zealand members, and by agreement, for all the copyright owners around the world.
