JAFES is given authority by our Authors to impose fees for commercial uses (outside the license).  The below fee schedule shall apply only to commercial use requests.  Our objective is not to earn profit but to standardize the approach to such requests.

1st step is the base fee

2nd is to determine the type of requesting party and we will impose a surcharge

3rd step is to determine the number of copies

Examples of request and computed fee:
