South Africa:Letter from 50 Legal Scholars to South African Government, re: Flexible Copyright Exceptions

Following a consultative meeting in Pretoria recently, the DTI invited comments and draft legislative provisions to assist it in its quest to reform copyright law. It is to be lauded for its consultative approach. In response to the DTI's invitation, a group of 50 scholars from across the world (disclosure: this Leo is one of them) have penned a letter to the DTI offering both commentary and draft legislative text. Peter Jaszi, Sean Flynn and Michael Carroll of the American University Washington College of Law's Program on Information Justice and IP (PIJIP) organised the preparation and signature of the letter. You can read the letter on the infojustice blog here.
