There should be a company in Quatar dealing with it. You need to sing contract with them and pay them annually a certain amount. They should deal with the copyrights globally.

In the EU there are national organizations that administer copyright royalties and are able to negotiate this for all copyright holders. In the US it's considerably more complicated. The first step would be to find an excellent International Intellectual Property law firm to guide you through the process. It's no simple task.

Even though you might be using the material only in Qatar, your company could face legal action in the US which could have repercussions in other countries around the world who have treaty obligations should you not do this properly.
