  • Transcript

    • 1. La voix des Consommateurs à travers le monde The global voice for consumers La voz global para la defensa de los consumidores Malaysian Copyright Law Review
    • 2. Copyright and Access to Knowledge
      • Since 2005, CI Kuala Lumpur has conducted a successful project on Copyright and A2K
      • Main findings:
        • National copyright laws don’t fully utilize the exceptions and provisions provided for in international treaties to enhance access to knowledge
    • 3. Law Reviews
      • Following from the copyright project
        • Indonesian law review
        • Malaysian law review
        • National stakeholder workshop
    • 4. Malaysian copyright law
      • Malaysia copyright act 1987
      • Amended in 1990, 1996, 1997, 2000,2002, and 2003
      • Malaysia is a member of the Berne convention and the TRIPS agreement
      • Malaysia is yet to accede to the WCT and the WPPT, but most of the substantive provisions have already been incorporated into national copyright law
    • 5. Fair use
      • Now: fair dealing is restricted to a specific set of purposes mentioned in the copyright law, such as non-profit research or review
      • CIKL wants four non exclusive statutory factors
        • The purpose and the character of the dealing
        • the nature of the copyrighted work
        • the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyright work as a whole
        • the effect of the dealing upon the potential market for or value of the copyright work
    • 6. Educational institution
      • Now: The definition of educational institution is narrow
      • CIKL wants to broaden the definition that better reflects current educational needs
    • 7. Distance education
      • Now: no explicit exceptions for distance education are included in the copyright law.
      • CIKL wants to include specific new exceptions in the Malaysian copyright law to:
        • enable educational institutions to digitize reading materials for purposes of online correspondence
        • exempt the communication of lessons to enable systematic instruction to take place
    • 8. Circumvention of Technological Protection Measures
      • Now: the article concerning the circumvention of TPMs is rather unclear
      • CIKL wants to amend the article to:
        • make it more clear
        • to make the manufacturing and marketing of a circumvention device an offence, and not the act of circumvention itself.
    • 9. Next steps
      • The Malaysian law review - that a lot can be done to improve access to knowledge while simply implementing the flexibilities already provided for in International treaties
      • CIKL hopes that organisations in other countries will also review their national copyright laws and make clear recommendations to their governments
      • Only then, knowledge material can become accessible for every consumer throughout the world
    • 10. La voix des Consommateurs à travers le monde The global voice for consumers La voz global para la defensa de los consumidores Thank you for your attention
