ERA – opening up a world of broadcast learning resources
The ERA Licensing Scheme provides a single point of clearance for all rights necessary for educational establishments at all levels of education to create and use resources obtained from broadcast materials whether on television or radio. Educational establishments need an ERA Licence if they enable students or teachers to use material sourced from broadcasts for teaching purposes. This includes enabling access to catch up services of UK broadcasters when terms and conditions link with the ERA Licence.
As a not for profit organisation, we only cover our administration costs from the money we collect from licensing. We pay everything else to our Members. This ensures that Rightsholders are being paid fairly for the work they have created.
Most educational establishments in the UK hold current ERA licences, either in the form of an individual licence or as part of a blanket license agreement; for example, where a local authority has entered into an agreement with ERA on behalf of all its schools.
