The Legal Protection of Copyright
Keywords:knowledge issues, intellectual property, Copyright, phenomenal scientific and technical advances
Due to the gathering momentum of access to knowledge issues, over the past few years, the issue of access to knowledge has become a concern for many countries and competent parties, in developed or developing societies alike. This is because the problem of intellectual property is universal as it is not concentrated in a single country. Therefore, intellectual property issues and the protection of Copyright are among the most important and critical issues, related to knowledge and its accessibility. This is the reason that prompted many Arab and foreign countries to make amendments in its legislative system by setting controls and guarantees for the mechanisms of the exchange and dissemination of knowledge to preserve the rights of authors and creators and keep pace with the phenomenal scientific and technical advances.
