Beginning of an ERA for OU

Today's the day that the UK's Educational Recording Agency (ERA) admitted the Open University to membership. According to the official announcement on ERA's website,
ERA admits OU to membership to support joint licensing initiative for educational establishments.

ERA has admitted Open University Worldwide Limited to ERA membership with effect from 1 July 2013.

This means that all ERA licensees will now be able to treat the repertoire previously licensed separately under OU off-air licences as being available to become ERA Recordings covered by ERA Licences and ERA Plus Licences.

Only ERA Licences and ERA Plus licences will be required to cover future non-commercial educational use of OU Repertoire within the scope of the ERA and ERA Plus licence terms. 
Further information is available on the ERA website for those who are sufficiently affected, or curious, to want to read it.

Our thanks go to Graham Titley for spotting this.
