By becoming a member of ERRA, authors and publishers can ensure consistent revenue stream from the secondary uses of their published works.
Our not-for-profit association currently represents numerous Emirati and foreign authors and publishers. At ERRA, we foster sharing culture and education with a vast catalogue of printed and digital publications in the UAE in order to encourage more creative works. Contact us!
As a reprographic rights association, we have crucial roles in administering licenses for the secondary uses of literary works and act on behalf of authors and publishers to collect and distribute royalties. We are a not-for-profit, licensed body recognized by the UAE Ministry of Economy, which enables us to provide licenses to Higher Education institutions (HEI).Consequently, these permissions are crucial both for HEI (the users) and authors and publishers (the rightsholders). They allow authors and publishers to get their work adequately remunerated while helping HEI avoid copyright infringements. That way, the Higher Education license gives these institutions the possibility to enrich the students’ experience by giving them access to copyrighted material managed under a legal framework that values the creations of rightsholders.
Higher Education License
ERRA becomes a key factor in the collection and distribution process of royalties as the not-for-profit regulatory association that acts as a facilitator between users and rightsholders.
We provide a Higher Education (HE) license that grants permission to educational institutions to copy and communicate copyright-protected materials for their educational purposes, avoiding potential legal infringements. That way, we make a significant contribution to the education sector while protecting the rights of authors and publishers.
