The 42nd session of WIPO's Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights (SCCR) takes place in Geneva from 9 - 13 May 2022.
It is the first full meeting since the start of the pandemic. It will take place in hybrid format, with in-person participation in Geneva and online.
EIFL is represented by Teresa Hackett, EIFL Copyright and Libraries Programme Manager and Dick Kawooya, University of South Carolina.
EIFL participates in discussions on limitations and exceptions for libraries and archives, education and research, and a proposed treaty for the protection of broadcast organizations. At its last session, the Committee decided to hold an information session at SCCR/42 on the impact of the COVID pandemic on the cultural, creative and educational ecosystem.
