CLA Standing Committee on Intellectual Property and Public Access

The CLA Standing Committee on Intellectual Property and Public Access – International Trade Treaties Working Group has two documents that should be of interest to SLAWers: their report on the WTO/TRIPS agreement, which concludes that the agreement is not especially hostile to balanced domestic copyright legislation, and advises so-called “user groups” and other advocating for balance to confront claims that “international agreements” require extension of ownership domain. The Working Group has also created a GATS and Libraries Pathfinder to assist information retrieval.
Thanks to Lindsay Johnston of the U of A for this.
