Who will follow Brazil's lead?

  • The bill deals with three main issues: 
    • It requires government funded educational resources to be made widely available to the public under an open license, 
    • clarifies that resources produced by public servants under his/her official capacities should be open educational resources (or otherwise released under an open access framework), and 
    • urges the government to support open federated systems for the distribution and archiving of OER.
