Blog Entry Standing Committee's recommendations are at odds with Access to Knowledge
by Anubha Sinha published Jul 27, 2021 last modified Jul 28, 2021 09:31 AM — filed under: , , ,

This blog post summarily notes the observations and recommendations of the Committee on the Copyright Act, 1957 which stand to impact access to knowledge. The primary issue dealt with was the claim that copyright exceptions were affecting the publishing industry and authors. The recommendations include narrowing of copyright exceptions, barring digital storage and copying, promotion of libraries, and adopting the Berne Convention as the benchmark on limitations and exceptions.
