Rodriguez to leave Copyright Agency

Copyright Agency cultural fund manager Zoë Rodriguez has announced her departure after 13-and-a-half years at the organisation.

Rodriguez joined the Copyright Agency as a lawyer, first coordinating and then leading policy development and advocating to government and others on behalf of members. Rodriguez coordinated the Copyright Agency’s successful tender to run the resale royalty for artists scheme, before she took over operation of the cultural fund.

Rodriguez oversaw the increase in funding to the cultural fund from 1% to 1.5% of licensing revenue; encouraged applications from the visual arts sector, which had received little cultural funding previously; established a fellowships program for creators and others in the publishing and visual arts sectors; and established and managed the Reading Australia initiative.

Copyright Agency CEO Adam Suckling thanked Rodriguez for her contribution.
