Many librarians, researchers and teachers in Kenya do not know about the provisions of the Copyright Act with respect to fair dealing and other exceptions, and how to utilize the exceptions in the course of their work.

The webinar will raise awareness of fair dealing and other exceptions in the Kenya Copyright Act, identify challenges among user communities in using these provisions, take a look at developments in the region (Nigeria), and the evolution of fair dealing internationally.

The great lineup of speakers includes Prof. Joseph M. Kavulya KLISC Chair, University Librarian, Chuka University; Paul Kaindo, KECOBO; Denise Nicholson, Scholarly Communications and Copyright Consultant; Dr Desmond Oriakhogba, University of Venda; Jonathan Band, Copyright Attorney.
