CEDRO, IFRRO’s RRO member in Spain, has recently signed an agreement with institutions of Catalonia in order to simplify the payments derived from the public lending right. This agreement will allow CEDRO to collect the rights that correspond to the lending of works in public libraries of Catalonia that is foreseen in the law (Real Decreto). CEDRO will then distribute such rights among rightholders.
Thanks to this agreement, the first of its kind in Spain, the libraries will supply valuable information that will help CEDRO to calculate the correct fees and rights that are to be paid to rightholders.
