IFRRO Publishes Guide to Distribution of Copyright Revenue

IFRRO has published a Quick Guide to Distribution of Copyright Revenue in the Text and Image Based Sector, outlining the rationale behind copyright and licensing and explaining how Collective administration of rights through RROs ensures that those who need access to knowledge – often schools, universities, private corporations or government departments - have the widest possible range of content available to them, while those who create and publish it are fairly paid when their published works are copied, made available or distributed for subsidiary uses (as opposed to sold).

It shows how RROs demonstrate transparency, accountability, good governance, efficiency and due diligence in their distribution schemes and lists examples of best practices from around the globe.
