dc.description.abstract South African Copyright and Access to Knowledge (ACA2K) research has demonstrated a correlation between a country’s copyright environment and access to learning materials in that country. The copyright environment encompasses laws, policies and practices, and the report includes a survey of relevant legislation, policies, secondary literature and reported case law. The current set of copyright exceptions and limitations, particularly in relation to educational uses of copyright-protected materials, are vague, fragmentary and in many instances outdated. The use of modern technologies for educational purposes, for example in distance education, remains largely unconsidered. en
