Copyright User Rights Survey

 

The Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property of the American University Washington College of Law is conducting interdisciplinary research into the effects of changes to national laws governing copyright user rights.  Our work will be based on our Copyright User Rights Survey, first distributed to legal experts in October 2016. We will use the results of the survey to create an open access database of the growth and change in user rights over time, from 1970 to the present, including the extent to which general, open and flexible exceptions exist in civil as well as common law countries and degree to which such factors are associated with the time of legal reform. The database will enable future research products including, e.g., econometric and other studies of the impact of more general, open and flexible user rights within the law.

This project utilizes the expertise of the Global Expert Network on Copyright User Rights — a network of legal, economic and policy experts from around the world interested in the utility of copyright user rights. The network convenes meetings and conferences, organizes policy statements and publications and provides a forum for academics and policy advocates to share information and set research and advocacy priorities.
