IAF side event on The Business of Being an Author

In conjunction with the WIPO SCCR meeting 7-11 December 2015, IAF organised a side event on The Business of Being an Author. Among the presentations given at the event, there was one about the PwC study on the negative impact on authors and the publishing sector of the changes to the Copyright Act in Canada in 2012. IFRRO has also provided analysis on this topic and published a Report on Canada after the changes to the copyright legislation in 2012. RROs have, nevertheless, made efforts to meet dynamic user needs for authorisation to use copyright works in education, which was presented at a side event organised during the same SCCR by IFRRO and Education International.
