About Us

ECCLA is the Eastern Caribbean Copyright Licensing Association. We are a reprographic rights organisation seeking to protect the intellectual property rights of our members throughout the OECS sub-region, who have produced literary, dramatic and artistic works and ensure that they are properly remunerated. The organisation was formed after a series of consultations sponsored by the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) and the International Federation of Reprographic Rights Organisations (IFFRO). The organisation is also a member of IFFRO.

ECCLA has a presence in the following countries:eccla logo4

(1) Antigua and Barbuda

(2) Dominica

(3) Grenada

(4) St Kitts and Nevis

(5) St Lucia

(6) St Vincent and the Grenadines

ECCLA through the collective strength of its individual members has far greater bargaining power to negotiate collective licences with government, libraries, educational institutions and businesses. Not only can we ensure that our members are properly remunerated for their work, but we ensure that respect for copyright is maintained by raising awareness of the scope and value of copyright.
