Assessment of the Finnish Copyright System
Cupore assesses the operation of the Finnish copyright system on the basis of annually changing themes.
This also involves continuously developing the methods for assessing the system in order to better support political decision-making and strategic planning. The work is based on the methodological framework developed in the context of Cupore’s project Assessing the operation of copyright and related rights systems.
The goal of the project portfolio is to produce a broad and continuously updated information base on the operation of the Finnish copyright system. This will increase the transparency of the copyright system, and add to the general understanding of the system’s operation.
The assessment work started in 2018.
