Most copyright legislations in the world do not meet the needs of modern research and education. Cross-border sharing, online use, and making digital copies for preservation are legally permitted only to a limited degree in various countries. This long-standing problem has had a serious impact on researchers, educators, and learners during COVID. The session will share ideas on how international copyright policy can be reformed, and how the presenters, as regional leaders in a global A2K civil society coalition of 60 members, are collaborating to shape solutions at WIPO, WTO, UNESCO, etc.
