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 other legal concerns. CLM is also active in issues relating to:

  • Economic and legal barriers to the acquisition and use of library resources and effective library services
  • Subscription and license agreements
  • Legal issues relevant to broader access to knowledge, in particular online
  • 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 meetings through its subcommittee on WIPO’s Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights (SCCR). In addition, CLM works closely with other regional library organizations with shared interests, such as eIFLEBLIDA, and LCA to ensure that the concerns of libraries are voiced.
