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.

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.
