From novelists to publishers to tutors, the Irish Copyright Licensing Agency CLG (ICLA) is run by a team that passionately believes in and understands the importance of copyright.
We are a licensing body – as defined by Section 149 of the Copyright & Related Rights Act, 2000 – and registered with the Controller of Intellectual Property in the Register of Copyright Licensing Bodies.
Together, our Board works hard to meet the standards put in place by the European Union Collective Rights Management (Directive 2014/26/EU) Regulations 2016, transposed into Irish law through S.I. No.156 of 2016 in April 2016.
In line with these laws, we make sure our operations and governance structures are transparent and consistent, so we can fairly represent Ireland’s talented creators.
