UNESCO Policy Guidelines Related to Governmental Public Domain Information
Prepared by Paul Uhlir, the Guidelines to advise countries on policies for the development and promotion of governmental public domain information, taking account of both national needs and international practices have now been published by UNESCO as the role and value of public domain information, especially of information produced by the public sector, is generally poorly understood.
The publication encourages governments to play a leading role by defining the scope of available governmental public domain Information according to the nations needs, adopting a national Freedom of Information law and developing and implementing a comprehensive Governmental Public Information Policy Framework, as well as recommends an approach to access and use of governmental information protected by intellectual property laws.
