Restrictive copyright laws create legal barriers to accessing resources for education, research and personal development. At EIFL, we advocate for fair and balanced copyright laws that support libraries in providing access to knowledge.
In April 2012, the EIFL-IP programme invited proposals for advocacy campaigns in support of copyright law reform in EIFL partner countries. We especially wish to support countries with pending legislation in copyright and related rights, or where reviews of copyright law or consultations with stakeholders are planned.
Twenty proposals from eighteen countries in Africa, Asia and Europe were received. With the support of an external evaluator, we will award grants for up to ten projects up to a maximum of 4,000 Euro. We look forward to reading about the range of ideas from the community for how to achieve positive change for libraries in national copyright laws. We thank everyone who applied and expressed interest. Successful applicants will be notified by Monday, 28 May 2012.
