Discovery, National Geographic and AETN channels develop links with ERA
ERA licences cover use of the copyright works owned by ERA members. Formal links with ERA have now been established with Discovery Communications Europe Limited, NGC Europe Limited and AETN UK.
These broadcasters are represented within ERA by Compact Collections Limited.
Find out more about Compact Collections Limited and the rights that it represents. Previously the ERA Licence applied to educational recordings made from UK broadcasts on these channels (even though the broadcaster itself was not an ERA member) but only for works and performances included in the broadcast owned by ERA members (for example music within the repertoire of PRS).
From now on the copyright in broadcasts on these channels is covered by the scope of both the main ERA Licence and the ERA Plus Licence.
