Colombia is now in the process of reforming its copyright law (Ley 23 de 1982). In view of this reform and of the debate at the Comisión Primera of the Honourable Senate of the Republic of Colombia, IFLA submitted written comments and suggestions for specific changes to the Bill.

For the preparation and submission of comments, IFLA collaborated with the Fundación Conector and had the support of the Colegio Colombiano de Bibliotecología (ASCOLBI).
