Welcome to the Weekend

The Authors’ Licensing and Collecting Society (ALCS) is a membership organisation that works to protect authors’ rights and ensure they receive fair remuneration for their work. We distribute money that is collected for the photocopying and scanning of published works occurring in education institutions, businesses and government institutions – as well as fees that are received from the television and radio rebroadcasting of scripts. The quickest way to become a member of ALCS is through the website: alcs.co.uk. With an easy, online application process and a one-off £36 membership fee, signing up is worth it once you receive your first payment.
