IFLA will be setting out the reasons for the importance of a modern copyright regime, incorporating flexible exceptions and limitations, in an intervention at the Uruguayan Parliament, alongside experts in the field from Uruguay and beyond. 

The session is organised by the chairs of the Science, Innovation and Technology Committee, and the Special Committee on Human Rights, Equity and Gender of the Uruguay Senate. It takes place in the context of the 5th national Open Government Plan.

The event aims to analyse the need for reform of Uruguay’s current copyright regime, in order to meet the needs of the 21st century, and to give greater legal security to libraries, archives and education and research institutions.

IFLA will speak on the topic of international proposals around exceptions and limitations for libraries and archives.
