Today, the World Intellectual Property Organization, the UN’s copyright/patent/trademark body, hosted a „Information Meeting on Educational Content and Copyright in the Digital Age“ — a meeting where representatives of libraries, Creative Commons, publishers, and science organizations vied to convince representatives from WIPO’s 182 member national governments about the need for laws that balance the rights of creators and educational users of copyrighted works. Representatives from the governments of Chile and Canada gave inspirational presentations about the education-friendly copyright exception proposals currently being considered in their national legislatures.
