CDR signs a new licence with Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas  

After a lengthy negotiation CDR, IFRRO’s Colombian RRO member recently announced the signing of a licence with Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas, a public university with over twenty four thousand students and ten campuses across Bogota city. The agreement will cover the digital uses of works included in CDR’s repertoire and that are frequently used in the digital platforms used by said university. 

Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas ranks number sixteen from a total of 158 Colombian universities. CDR expects that the new agreement will set the example for other universities in the country that do not have a licence agreement with the RRO and therefore, do not respect copyright when making secondary uses of printed works.
