In this session we will discuss the different approaches and challenges that different members of the CC network had faced pushing for copyright reform in the context of trade agreementsm, like TPP, the Pacific Alliance and the trade agreements between the United States and the Latin American countries, amongothers. We will compare these secret negotiations with heavy implications on copyright reform, with the processes of copyright reform proposals in WIPO. We will try to figure out the main obstacles for advocacy in that space, how they have been adressed by the Creative Commons community, the challenges it raises at a local, regional and global level, and what lessons can we all learn from this. We will also discuss what’s the role of the Creative Commons community in support of the local efforts to push for a progressive copyright agenda.
