This article focuses on a licence, created under the New Zealand Copyright Act, which allows schools, universities and polytechnics to copy from television, provided they pay a licence fee to Screenrights. Screenrights is a non-profit that collects licence fees, monitors copying and distributes the money it collects to the rightsholders in the copied programmes. The license benefits both educators and the film industry, according to Screenrights licensing executive James Dickinson.
