“The A2K Coalition calls for a fair and balanced international copyright system that is underpinned by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights….This map shows the status of copyright exceptions for key activities related to education, research and cultural heritage…”
“Access to knowledge is not enjoyed equally across the world. Crises, including the COVID-19 pandemic and the climate emergency, highlight the barriers that the current copyright system poses for those who learn, teach, research, create, preserve or seek to enjoy the world’s cultural heritage. The international copyright system has failed to keep pace with advancing technology and practices, including for digital and cross-border activities. Consequently, we have been unable to seize the possibilities that exist to promote access to, and use of, knowledge to fulfil human rights and achieve more equitable, inclusive and sustainable societies. The members of this coalition represent educators, researchers, students, libraries, archives, museums, other knowledge users and creative communities around the globe. Our individual missions are varied but we all share a vision of a fair and balanced copyright system that is underpinned by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”
