In International Copyright Law and Access to Education in Developing Countries: Exploring Multilateral Legal and Quasi-Legal Solutions, Susan Isiko Strba offers an understanding of the legal relationship between copyright regulation and access to education in developing countries, and explores both institutional and normative ways to facilitate access to printed educational and research materials.
The author explores the question of whether limitations or exceptions (flexibilities) in international intellectual property law can be utilised to balance the private interest of intellectual property right holders and the public interest of IP users and highlights the role of national institutions in crafting case-by-case educational exceptions in ways that may make WTO retaliation more onerous. Institutional reform and normative re-ordering within the intellectual property system and affiliated institutions are evaluated within an overall framework of new approaches for providing access solutions.
