By Tiina Kautio and Nathalie Lefever, Center for Cultural Policy Research (Cupore), 2018, 60 pages, ISBN: 978-952-7200-27-8 (pdf), ISSN: 1796-9263 (pdf)
The publication Assessing Governance in the Context of Copyright Systems explores different ways of assessing governance in national copyright and related rights systems. The characteristics of processes for making and implementing decisions are an important aspect of the copyright system's operation. Complying to generally recognized good governance principles provides an ethical basis for governance and leads to improved decision-making processes, helping public authorities to meet their legislative responsibilities and to achieve better efficiency in the management of public affairs. The purpose of this publication is to: 1) define good governance in the context of the copyright system, 2) select and describe generally recognized good governance principles particularly applicable to the copyright system, and 3) present a list of questions to be answered when assessing the compliance of the copyright system to good governance principles. This document is linked to an extensive methodological work to study and assess the operation of national copyright and related rights systems, conducted in Finland by the Center for Cultural Policy Research (Cupore). The publication is the second edition of a document first published in 2017.
