EIFL supports libraries in Armenia as the country prepares to introduce a
new copyright law

EIFL has been engaged in copyright work in Armenia since 2012, supporting a
national  advocacy campaign to review the current (2006) copyright law and
to make library-friendly recommendations for the new law.

The new draft copyright law is expected to be made available in 2016 for
public consultation. EIFL and the Electronic Library Consortium of Armenia
(ELCA) <http://www.eifl.net/country/armenia> are monitoring developments,
and will make further interventions as needed.

EIFL’s support helped build capacity and confidence of Armenian librarians
to engage with the Armenian copyright office and to represent libraries’
interests on the international stage, at a meeting of the World
Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in Geneva (Switzerland).
Participation in national and international processes has won recognition
for Armenian librarians as important stakeholders and contributors to
copyright law reform.
