The Organization for Transformative Works supports laws that protect fair use and fair dealing—the term used by many countries—around the world. Right now, South Africa is working on reforming and updating its copyright law, and has proposed adding fair use to replace narrow, outdated exceptions in its copyright law. Recognizing the importance of copyright reform around the world, the OTW filed a comment supporting South Africa’s adoption of a fair use standard and arguing against adopting rules that would prevent fan video makers from circumventing copy protections that copyright owners try to use to prevent fair use.
