IFLA Statement On Copyright Education and #CopyrightLiteracy #WLIC2018
"Copyright literacy can be defined as sufficient copyright knowledge to be able to take well informed decisions on how to use copyrighted materials. It includes understanding the structure, functioning and implications of the copyright system, as laws, practices, and user expectations evolve. Copyright education is the process of developing and updating copyright literacy."
There are recommendations to Governments, librarians, educators of librarians and library associations. The statement is currently available in English, French, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese and Russian. https://www.ifla.org/node/67012
