RECOMMENDATION 2: PRIORITIZE FREE EXPRESSION

The results of our crowdsourcing project demonstrate that participants value the principle of free expression above all other priorities for copyright. Copyright rules must safeguard freedom of expression online.

There are four components to preserving free expression:

1. Preventing censorship;

2. Protecting fair use and or fair dealing;

3. Promoting access and affordability; and

4. Creating clear and simple rules to govern the sharing of knowledge and culture online.
