EIFL compiles booklet of statements by library and archive organizations on
how access to knowledge is denied when copyright exceptions stop at the
border, or when licensing fails.

The statements were made by librarians and archivists at sessions of WIPO’s
Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights (SCCR).

The statements are from the Australian Library and Information Association
(ALIA), the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals
(CILIP), EIFL, the European Bureau of Library, Information and
Documentation Associations (EBLIDA), the German Library Association (DBV),
the International Council on Archives (ICA), the International Federation
of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), the Karisma Foundation,
LIBER (Association of European Research Libraries), the Scottish Council on
Archives (SCA), and the Society of American Archivists (SAA).

The booklet is a valuable resource for policy-makers and government
officials concerned with copyright, as well as librarians and archivists
involved in copyright advocacy.
