Turkey’s First Copyright Agency
ONK Agency Inc., formerly ONK Copyright Agency, was established in 1959 by Osman N. Karaca. With the exception of a few representatives that already dealt with copyrights regarding photography, feature articles and comic strips, ONK became the first and largest literary and dramatic agency in Turkey over the years.
Onk Agency proudly represents a variety of Turkish authors and translators managing their book rights both across the country and worldwide. The Agency also steps forth with its foreign rights department, representing over one hundred foreign publishing houses and agencies, majority of them being exclusively.
For many years, Onk Agency has an important reputation in the industry with being the only copyright agency in Turkey, operating in the field of performing arts. In addition to many Turkish playwrights the Agency represents, Onk Agency continues to collaborate with hundreds of foreign agencies as well as individual playwrights, successfuly managing their foreign rights activities.
