Legislation Updates
The latest key developments and commentary on legislation which restricts the right to freedom of expression (FOE) on the basis of copyright. ARTICLE 19’s RIGHT TO SHARE DIGEST tracks updates on FOE and copyright law, news and debates.

By making copies available across borders on an unprecedented scale and at minimal cost, the internet has lead to an alarming increase in copyright claims at the expense of FOE. ARTICLE 19 advocates for copyright regulation which sets an appropriate balance with protection of FOE and supports creativity, the spread of knowledge and cultural expression. Our Right to Share Principles, available from 25th April 2013, set out a framework for such a balance based on international human rights standards.
