EIFL Reports, “First China ‘Fair Use Week’ A Success”

From the EIFL Blog:

China’s first ‘Fair Use Week’ took place in Beijing City on 19-20 May 2016 with the theme ‘Copyright issues in information services’. The event was co-organized by the Library of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (LCAS), EIFL’s partner, and is one of four library-organized events in China in 2016.


The two-day event in Beijing was attended by more than 100 librarians, researchers and publishers, as well as the general public, who participated in four public lectures and interactive roundtable forums each day.


At the opening session, Ms Gong Huiling, Assistant Curator, Library of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (LCAS), highlighted how the fair use system would help to promote the dissemination and use of information in China, as well as to support implementation of China’s national IP strategy.
