ACA2K Executive Policy Brief: Ghana

4. Action Points for Stakeholders: the Way forward

The way forward is to ensure that before there is an enforcement crackdown (in particular, against students and

researchers) there is clarification/refinement of the thorny areas of the copyright regulatory environment so as to create better protection for learners who access copyright materials for legitimate, non-commercial purposes.

Indeed, if begun before legislative/regulatory reform, strict enforcement of the law would undermine some of the key objectives of any progressive copyright system. It would stifle access to teaching and learning, which, in turn, would slow down ‘creativity’ in Ghana. Therefore, enforcement mechanisms must be balanced against policies to improve the lot of students and researchers in Ghana.
