About Prescient

Prescient Innovations – a wholly-owned subsidiary of Access Copyright – is dedicated to exploring emerging technologies, like blockchain and machine learning, to ensure creators are well-represented in the new digital frontier.

Access Copyright is a collective voice of creators and publishers in Canada. We represent more than 12,000 writers and visual artists and more than 600 publishers.

For 30+ years, Canadian creators and publishers of trade books, textbooks, journals, newspapers and magazines have licensed the copying of parts of their works through Access Copyright. In that time, we’ve distributed more than $440 million CAD in royalties to rightsholders which provides critical reinvestment into content creation. We also advocate on behalf of creators and publishers to ensure they are fairly compensated when their works are used.
