Copyright and other Legal Matters (CLM) Advisory Committee

CLM was created to advise IFLA and represents the voice of the international library community in copyright and intellectual property concerns. CLM is also active in issues relating to:

  • Disputed claims of ownership of library materials
  • Economic and trade barriers to the acquisition and use of library resources and effective library services
  • Subscription and license agreements
  • A wide range of other legal matters of international significance to libraries and librarianship

CLM keeps a watching brief on the activities of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and represents IFLA at key WIPO-meetings. CLM works closely with other regional library organizations with shared interests, such as eIFL, EBLIDA, and LCA to ensure that the concerns of libraries are voiced.
