You are entitled to a fee discount of 10 per cent. RCG members aren't charged a copyright fee on your media monitoring bill if you hold your own CAL licence (which you should if you collect media coverage from anywhere - including a clipping agency). Make it known that you are an RCG to ensure you haven't been overcharged. Several members received repayments of more than $1000 last year once they let their media clipping agency know they held their own licence.

You are protected by a safe harbour if you inadvertently breach copyright. This means you will not be asked to pay fines and penalties by CAL. You will be required to become compliant of course and pay for licences covering any disputed items.
