"Multiple studies carried out by international institutions, such as the UN, identified Intellectual Property Rights as partially responsible for the existence of a difference between 'information-rich' and 'information-poor' due to the exclusion they create. Thus, an approach to the management of Intellectual Property, taking into account human development and fundamental rights, has proved to be essential.
In this context, the Open Access approach to copyright management emerged as the most appropriate model to promote education through access to information and creative content.
Under this model, intellectual works, such as educational and research materials, are made available online free of charge."
