Communia launches twenty new policy recommendations on its tenth anniversary

Communia, a non-governmental organisation that advocates for policies that expand the public domain and increase access to and reuse of culture and knowledge, issued twenty new copyright policy recommendations for the next decade.

On the occasion of Communia’s tenth anniversary in 2021, the organisation has made public domain recommendations for the new decade. The new package of recommendations builds on the Public Domain Manifesto and the previous 14 Communia recommendations for the public domain, both issued by the Communia in 2011. Respecting the public domain and the exceptions of copyright for the public good is crucial for sustainable copyright, especially in a modern, ever changing digital society. The recommendations were launched at an event in Brussels on 31 May 2022. As a member of the Communia Executive Board and the director of the Institute for Intellectual Property, one of the founders of Communia, dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič attended the Brussels launch.
