Promoting a fair copyright system
Restrictive copyright laws create legal barriers to accessing resources for education, research and personal development. This can have significant consequences for libraries in developing and transition countries where the ability to produce and use knowledge is a major factor in development.
We advocate for a fair and balanced copyright system that supports libraries in maximizing access to knowledge.
Playing a leadership role in promoting national and international copyright law reform. Advocating for improved copyright laws for libraries - results of eight national campaigns.
A network in more than 35 partner countries has been built of EIFL-IP librarians, who have been trained in advocacy and copyright issues for libraries. Meet the EIFL-IP network.
In 2012, over 6,000 librarians in EIFL-partner countries received training through the EIFL-IP network.
