Exceptions and limitations to copyright are necessary to promote education, culture and research in the digital age, they provide guarantees to people and institutions that make honest and socially accepted uses of knowledge.
For years, the organizations and experts that work at the intersection between human rights and technologies have detected an important regulatory backwardness in the copyright laws of Latin America.
Aligned with the UNESCO OER Recommendation (V lit. g), the recently formed SCiLAC Group (Latin American and Caribbean Civil Society) has begun to generate materials and evidence for advocacy in the Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights (SCCR) of the WIPO.
As part of these actions, we have published the "Report on Copyright Flexibilities in Latin America" and created an interactive map that provides a visual overview of the state of the situation of copyright flexibilities to facilitate understanding of the report.
We will present the operation of the website, as well as its importance as an international consultation and advocacy tool.
