I had posted this before in June 2008 (noting there were fees), but with more digging confirmed by B-COPY’s mentor Access Copyright (Canada), I have been informed it’s a SHAM!!! Don’t do it! SAVE YOUR $$ and see below:
USE YOUR OFFICIAL Government Intellectual Property Office for reference or Reproduction Rights Organization or Main Library (like US Library of Congress) for Reference. See IFRRO’s list of recognized RROs.
It looks VERY convincing (fooled me into posting it HERE!) but as I learned more about RROs, I realized I didn’t see anything related to WIPO or IFRRO. I also found it difficult to find an address, contact or telephone number. When I tried to find it in the Acronym Finder or even Google, no luck.
Please let me know if you dealt with them AT ALL!
