About the Authors
  • The principle of Access to Knowledge (A2K) has become a common reference point for a diverse set of agendas that all hope to realize technological and human potential by making knowledge more accessible. This book is a history of international copyright focused on principles of A2K and their proponents. Whilst debate and discussion so far has covered the perspectives of major western countries, the author's fresh approach to the topic considers emerging countries and NGOs, who have fought for the principles of A2K that are now fundamental to the system. Written in a clear and accessible style, the book connects copyright history to current problems, issues and events.

    • Connects copyright history to current problems, issues and events in copyright and access to knowledge
    • Presents a history of principles of access to knowledge from a global perspective
    • Provides a new and fresh approach, written in a clear and accessible style
