There has been positive development for PNG songwriters, APRA (the Australian Performing Right Association Ltd, Sydney; ) has recently identified PNG works (see list here) in its logging process and requires help in contacting the composers/songwriters/lyricists of the songs. Each work could be eligible to share in an upcoming APRA royalty distribution if the songs and their associated rights holders are registered with APRA (PNG does not have its own facility as yet – we are working on it. APRA is helping out in the transitional period).
