PLR International Network

The first public lending right program was developed in Denmark in 1946. Thirty-four countries now have active PLR programs.

In 1995, a network of various countries’ PLR programs was established. Representatives of these programs share information and meet every two years at an international conference.

For additional information, please visit the Public Lending Right International Network website: The “Established PLR Schemes” section of the website has links to the different countries’ PLR programs.
