Serbian RRO approved by the Intellectual Property Office  

IFRRO had reported in February 2014 about the creation of a Reproduction Rights Oganisation (RRO) in Serbia; on 22 October 2015, the RRO has been approved by the Intellectual Property Office of the Republic of Serbia. Repro Serbia (or Organizacija za ostvarivanje reprografskih prava in Serbian) will now be able to start administering rights on behalf of the authors and publishers that have mandated it.   Olav Stokkmo, CEO of IFRRO, congratulated Mr. Vuk Vukicecic, Secretary General of the Publishers and Booksellers Association of Serbia, for successfully conducting the work that has led to the approval of the RRO and expressed IFRRO’s willingness to continue working with Serbian authors and publishers towards a strong and effective collective management of their rights in Serbia.
