The Authors Registry: www.authorsregistry.org
The Authors Registry is a nonprofit organization formed by a consortium of writers groups to help expedite the flow of royalty payments and small reuse fees to authors, particularly for new media uses. As a payment clearinghouse for certain categories of royalties and fees, the Registry lifts the burden from publishers and delivers checks to freelancers. The Registry also distributes fees to U.S. authors for photocopying of their work abroad.
