ABOUT THE RESOURCE
In March 2017, the law on copyright and related rights of the Kyrgyz Republic was amended to include important changes for the benefit of libraries, educational institutions and persons with print disabilities. There are also new provisions safeguarding access to works created through public funds.
EIFL has welcomed the changes that, taken together, herald a new law that is people-centred, pragmatic and puts education and development at the centre of copyright law and policy.
This analysis of the law (in English and Russian) sets out the main amendments with short explanations, and notes the practical effect of the amendments on beneficiary groups.
