UN official urges debate on publising trends
23 April 2011 – The head of the United Nations agency tasked with preserving the world''s cultural heritage today called for debate on the changing trends in book publishing and copyrights, saying new technologies are transforming the industry and having an impact on publishers, authors and readers. “Change is giving rise also to sharp new debates – about the strengths and weaknesses of different kinds of products, about the nature of copyright today, about the role of libraries relative to online knowledge, about the meaning of ''authorship'' in a world of blogs and wikis,” said Irina Bokova, the Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in a message to mark the World Book and Copyright Day.
