dc.description.abstractNational copyright laws necessarily include a number of provisions that are required to comply with international copyright treaties. The World Intellectual Property Association (WIPO) has traditionally been focused on treaties that strengthen the rights of copyright owners. However, for nearly a decade, WIPO's Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights (SCCR) has been discussing the need for a treaty setting out copyright exceptions for libraries and archives. Such a treaty would require signatory nations to include in their domestic copyright laws a minimum level of exceptions (a.k.a. users' rights) that would enable libraries and archives to fulfill their public interest mission. Drawing on her experience as a representative of the International Council on Archives at SCCR, Dr. Dryden describes the current state of these discussions, including the players, the obstacles, strategies, and prospects for success.en_US
