The Emirates Reprographic Rights Association
Copyright Management, Education & cultural promotion
WHAT WE DO
As a reprographic rights association and sole licensing body, we strive to share knowledge while preserving the creative talent of authors and publishers.
Today, reprography is a widely used form of printed and digital literary content distribution. Therefore, a reproduction rights association becomes a key partner for authors and publishing companies.
At The Emirates Reprographic Rights Management Association, we are committed to monitoring, managing and protecting copyrights efficiently on behalf of authors and publishers. Through a comprehensive approach, we manage the reprographic rights of literary works contractually transferred to our association.
Furthermore, at ERRA, we work diligently on issuing the necessary licenses to re-use digital and printed publications. That way, we enable educational institutions and several other organizations to copy a wide array of publications following specific rules established for the process. Therefore, we ensure rights holders are adequately reimbursed for the reprographic use of their work.
ERRA represents rightsholders – authors and publishers whose works are copied under the ERRA Licensing Scheme.
It has mandate agreements with rightsholders from the UAE and reciprocal agreements with Overseas RROs and CMOs that provide the repertoire that can be copied under its licensing services.
