Creative Copyright Campaign from CILIP

The Chartered Institute of Library & Information Professionals (CILIP) in the UK has taken a very creative approach to promote awareness around copyright reform in their community. They have started a campaign called Free Our History. There’s a petition, a hash tag and a website with lots of information about their position. But the really creative aspect of this campaign is how the message was communicated with the library and museum spaces. Organisaions were asked to display a case like this:
