Due to a decline in Public Lending Right revenue in the Netherlands, we will not be running Dutch PLR in 2017.

Why is Dutch PLR not running in 2017?

If you've previously claimed Dutch Public Lending Right (Dutch PLR) royalties, you will be aware that we have seen a decline in the PLR revenues we receive from the Netherlands due to decreases in book-borrowing and the closure of libraries throughout the country.

As such, we will unfortunately not be running Dutch PLR in 2017 and will notify previous claimants if the status of the scheme changes.

We continue to explore other European and international territories for potential PLR royalties and our current focus is on France, Germany and Australia. We will keep you updated on the progress of this work.

Payments to 2016 claimants

Royalty payments to eligible 2016 claimants are being processed in May 2017.
