On Friday 22 May 2009, I attended a workshop on Copyright Limitations and Exceptions for education and research environments at the silver springs hotel Nairobi.
Consumers International's African regional meeting on A2K was held in Nairobi, Kenya on 23 April. It was attended by sixteen African members and partners, including the President of CI, Samuel Ochieng, all of whom participated actively. The meeting succeeded in raising important issues for consumers that even the previous two regional meetings had not covered. These will be consolidated with ideas raised at the previous two regional meetings in CI's strategic plan on IP and A2K for the global consumer movement, to be presented at CI's Council meeting in June.
