ERA brings together creative parties who own rights in broadcasts and the material included within broadcasts.
This means we can offer a simple and efficient way for schools, colleges and universities to get the licence they need to be able to create teaching resources for non-commercial educational purposes by recording or sourcing our members’ broadcast output.
Currently, ERA has twenty-two Members, representing broadcasters, writers, visual creators, composers, directors and performers. Our Members also include organisations representing producers and owners of rights in sound recordings.
