About us

IFRRO, the International Federation of Reproduction Rights Organisations, is the international network of collective management organisations and creators’ and publishers’ associations in the text and image spheres. 

 

IFRRO has 156 members in over 85 countries (including all except two EU Member States), encompassing 106 Reproduction Rights Organisations (RROs), and 50 Creator or Publisher Association Members.

 

IFRRO’s mission is to develop and support an efficient and effective network of collective management organisations around the world, including RROs, to ensure the copyrights of authors, visual artists and publishers are respected when their works are reproduced and used. We do this by advocating for copyright and the creative sector and by building a strong and resilient RRO network that supports the rights of creators and publishers, including economic and moral rights. 

 

RROs license the reproduction of material protected by copyright, as well as licensing of digital content and other digital uses, whenever it is impracticable or impossible for rightsholders to act individually. RROs operate in the secondary market and complement the primary market of authors and publishers. RROs derive their authority from agreements with rightsholders and / or national legislation.
