This study developed by Sérgio Branco, director at ITS Rio, for CAPES Foundation and for United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), discusses copyright in Brazil. The technical document comprises a study of the Brazilian legislation on copyright in the national and international contexts, including information about actions, uses and implementation of open access policies in educational resources.
Initially, the work intends to identify, systematize and analyse Brazilian law on copyright, focusing on the legal doctrine and jurisprudence on open licenses. It also aims at contextualizing and problematizing the issue at a national and international level, emphasizing, in particular, the role of copyright and its relation with educational resources developed within public administration. Finally, Sérgio Branco presents quantitative and qualitative data on the development of open digital repositories, as well as the employment of open licenses in educational resources.
