EIFL is hopeful on South Africa's Copyright Amendment Bill that seeks to modernize copyright law for the digital age. In comments submitted to a public consultation, EIFL endorsed Joint Comments on the draft Bill from an international team of academics from South Africa and the US, and highlighted support for provisions critical to ensuring access to knowledge in the digital environment.
