What to read in September

Updated every month, we select three articles from our archives that we think you'll find interesting. This month, we're bringing our community and its collective copyright translation efforts into the spotlight.

Would it be easier for you to understand and share if the copyright and reuse information was correct and available in your native language? We believed it would and our Copyright Community has made it happen.
