International Federation of Reproduction Rights Organisations (IFRRO) is an international organization that operates in Malawi. IFRO works to make awareness on issues of copyright. It safeguards the lawful use of text and image based copyright works and also eliminates unauthorized copying. It does this through promoting efficient Collective Management of rights through RROs to complement creators' and publishers' own activities.
IFRRO was founded in 1980. It started off as a working group of the Copyright Committee of the International Publishers Association and the International Group of Scientific, Technical & Medical Publishers (STM). In May 1984, the group became an informal consortium called the International Forum for Reproduction Rights Organisations. In April 1988 in Copenhagen, it became a formal federation.
It works with many African organisations that deal with copyrights. Malawi’s Copyright Society of Malawi (COSOMA) is one such organization.
