Today is world copyright day

To my surprise I discovered that today is World Book and Copyright day….and has been for 17 years.

The UNESCO statement does not say very much about the copyright part but does state that “This day also calls us to reflect on the changes in books over the long term and the intangible values that should guide.” The organization recommends that you celebrate the day by “Educate yourself on books pirating: respect for copyright encourages the dissemination of knowledge and rewards their creators and publishers.”
