Public Lending Rights unchanged for 2013

The Public Lending Rights incomes have been frozen for this year.

The money paid out annually to writers in order to compensate for books loaned out from libraries will be at 6.2 pence per loan, the same amount as last year, with a top payment of £6,600.

Ed Vaizey, the Culture Minister and a man due to receive a 11% pay rise along with other fat cat MPs, confirmed recently that the amount allocated to the PLR scheme would remain unchanged.

Authors eligible for PLR will receive their statements in January and I, for one, can't bloody wait.
