The author, the daughter of a refugee, underscores the significance of education instilled by her father, who lacked it himself but saw it as a means to break free from poverty. She argues that educators require affordable training and access to materials, but copyright laws create obstacles. Research highlights issues with copyright exceptions for educators in Fiji and the Philippines. Educators unintentionally use copyrighted materials, struggling with the intricacies of copyright law. Financial limitations pose challenges for educational institutions globally, impacting both developed and developing countries. Educators often resort to using online resources without proper licensing due to these constraints. The author stresses the concern of copyright enforcement against educators, particularly in developing nations. Complex copyright exceptions hinder teaching quality and material utilization. In conclusion, the author urges a relaxation of copyright laws in education to ensure equitable access to education, especially in developing countries.
