Educators ask for a better copyright

We are over 8 million teachers and educators, over 100 million students. We are adults (4 out of 10) who continue to learn. Copyright law needs to work for us, and not just rightsholders' interests.

If we are thinking about education, especially from a life-long perspective, we cannot forget the role of libraries. From the grandest universtity to the smallest vilage, libraries are for all. They give everyone the possibility to keep learning, discovering, and updating their skills throughout life. In a rapidly changing world, this is essential not only for our economises, but also our societies, and democracies. To do this, libraries need to have the right copyright for a digital age.
