Uganda: International Standard Book Number Helps Authors, Readers Identify Publications

According to an article in IP Watch, ISBNs are playing a crucial role in Uganda in helping authors and readers identify publications and therefore facilitating copyright management.

Mr Charles Batambuze, Executive Director of the Uganda Reproduction Rights Organisation (URRO) is quoted as saying “although getting an ISBN is not a registration for copyrights, it can be used when one is seeking to prove copyrights of his or her book as ISBN can be used as a point of reference for authentication.”
