Conceptualising Users' Rights: Copyright, Open Access and Enforcement in Dialogue

Leading thinkers comment on the strategic and conceptual linkages between users rights campaigns being waged in copyright reform, in promoting open access policies and in resisting the global enforcement agenda. How are open models (either voluntary or prescribed) a useful parallel tool to expansion of limitations and exceptions in copyright to achieve similar legal reform goals? Where are open reforms and copyright reforms moving together? How will the Creative Commons (CC) policy change alter the work of CC affiliates? How are users advocates framing their resistance to the enforcement agenda in users rights terms and achieving similar goals through such advocacy?
