The United Nations World Book and Copyright Day is an opportunity to pay tribute to books and authors, encouraging everyone, and in particular young people, to discover the pleasure of reading and gain a renewed respect for those that create such works.

See the United Nations website for further information.

Here on the Better Internet for Kids (BIK) portal, we’ll be looking at the wider issues around copyright and intellectual property in support of the day. Come back nearer the time to read more.

And if you’re marking the day in some way linked to the Better Internet for Kids agenda, why not share an article with us - see our content contribution guidelines, or get in touch for more information.
