Today, Wednesday November 10 2010, during the 3rd day of the WIPO SCCR21, the Group B presented a proposal for a Work Program on copyright exceptions and limitations for the WIPO SCCR. Group B is the negotiation group that groups developed countries like US, EU and others.

The proposal is available here (link in blog). 

Initial reactions from civil society and developing countries, highlight that the Group B proposal is much more vague and weak that the African proposal that has the support of Brazil and other developing countries. The Group B proposal also lacks a reference to exceptions and limitations for education.
