The Public Lending Right Scheme 1982 (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018

This instrument will amend the Public Lending Right Scheme to maintain continuity after the UK has left the European Union, so that authors resident in the UK will continue to be eligible to register for the Public Lending Right alongside residents of a European Economic Area State. Under the Scheme authors receive payments from a central government fund based on the number of times their books are lent out by public libraries.
