ABOUT THE RESOURCE
For more information, please contact the Project Manager, Hasmik Galstyan
The seven month project on organizing a campaign to review the copyright law led by the Electronic Library Consortium of Armenia (ELCA) involved the formation of a library copyright committee, consultations with librarians in the regions, publication of the first resource on copyright adapted for local law, recommendations for library-friendly amendments, and the fostering of a professional relationship with the copyright office. Will the new law live up to library expectations? Time will tell when the Draft Law is published (expected sometime after April 2013), followed by public hearings for stakeholders.
The project results are described in a case study and illustrated in a project poster, one of eight EIFL-IP funded projects in 2013 for advocacy campaigns in support of copyright law reform in Africa, Asia, and Europe
