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 that have limited funds to purchase copyright-protected materials. We advocate for fair and balanced copyright laws that support libraries in providing access to knowledge.
The EIFL-IP programme invited proposals for advocacy campaigns in support of copyright law reform in EIFL partner countries. Over twenty proposals were received from eighteen countries on a range of copyright topics. We thank everyone who sent an application.
Funding was granted to seven projects in Africa, Asia, and Europe. The duration of the grants is from three to eight months. At the end of the projects, we will write up case studies illustrating activities, advocacy strategies, successes and lessons learnt so that libraries everywhere can benefit. Congratulations to the grantees, and we look forward to successful projects. Read more.
