Abstract: The African Copyright and Access to Knowledge (ACA2K) investigation into the copyright environment in Mozambique comes at an opportune time. Whereas the country faces challenges from the intersection of copyright and access to learning materials, copyright law is not well known and rarely enforced. Issues related to access to knowledge are not adequately addressed by the legal framework. There is a need to reduce the terms of copyright protection to the minimum standards set by the international instruments (TRIPs and Berne trade agreements), allowing works to fall into the public domain sooner, facilitating access to these works in a shorter period of time.
