A crucial part of IPA's mission is to inform member associations and the wider global publishing community about breaking developments which will impact publishers. We do this through a number of channels. the IPA website, our monthly e-newsletter, press releases and the IPA's dedicated social media feeds.
Content for Education launched

With discussions over the Copyright Directive proposal hotting up in the EU, Content 4 Education has been launched.

Launched on 17 May, the campaign features testimonials from authors, teachers and publishers as well as a video that presents how the current European legal framework promotes the production of high-quality learning materials.
The focus of the campaign is a possible exception for ‘illustration for teaching’ which is being proposed as part of the Draft Copyright Directive discussions.

Launching the campaign, IFRRO CEO Caroline Morgan said: It is vital that the ‘illustration for teaching’ exception is balanced. The clear message from the testimonials from authors, illustrators, journalists, teachers and publishers is that the sustainable delivery of quality educational content must not be put at risk.

IPA is active on educational publishing through the Educational Publishers Forum. The Forum last met in Reykjavik, Iceland in April. Alongside the meeting, the IPA also took the opportunity to talk to the local Minister for Education, Science and Culture, Lilja Alfreðsdóttir, to discuss the current system of educational publishing in Iceland and promote the importance of a dynamic local educational publishing industry.
