[...] C1. Encourage the use of open licenses for all educational materials produced by public institutions, recognising that governments, institutions and education authorities can generate substantial benefits by ensuring that the educational materials developed with public funds are made available under open licenses.

I think I prefer how it is, because we cannot forget that not every country legally recognises Creative Commons as an alternative to all rights reserved, however, most of the countries that have agreed to the Buenos Aires Convention do accept public domain in their legislations and allow people to publish under this condition as an alternative to all rights reserved

I see. Creative Commons in any case is a flexible license, very well customizable.

Agree with Javiera. Better to leave this this as "open licences" as this includes public domain.

The issue of free educational resources seems to be increasingly the quality of resources. OERs are not only images but can also be courses, textbooks, educational software, etc.

Beyond the adoption of Open Licences, I think it would be important to encourage universities and educators play an active role in advocating for intelectual propery legislation reform in their countries, where needed, to make sure that suitable copyright exceptions (e.g. fair use) are in place, so educators have the freedom to use of copyrighted materials for educational purposes without restrictions that unfortunately are applied in so many countries. An example of activism to reform copyright directive in EU is this campaign by Communia
