Feedback form is now closed.
In this session, we attempt to understand drivers, motivations and barriers from GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) institutions to involve themselves in the copyright reform.

We will present the outcomes of the Copyright advocacy campaign from Europeana and present the experiences of involvement of the Cinema Museum in the copyright reform process in Argentina, and the challenges departments under the Ministry of Culture Taiwan face while trying to release digital resources or collections to the public.

Session outcomes
  • Understand drivers, motivations and challenges that GLAM institutions face when discussing copyright reform;
  • receive feedback and collect experiences from other parts of the world;
  • explore ways in which GLAM institutions could be more effectively vocal about copyright reform.
