Type: Evidence | Hypothesis: OER policy change | Polarity: | Sector: | Country:

Bill PL. 989/2011, which was passed by Congresso Nacional do Brasil, dealt with three main issues: It 1) required government funded educational resources to be made widely available to the public under an open license, 2) clarified that resources produced by public servants under his/her official capacities should be open educational resources (or otherwise released under an open access framework), and 3) urged the government to support open federated systems for the distribution and archiving of OER.

São Paulo governor Geraldo Alckmin (PSDB) vetoed in its entirety the PL 989/2011, because of a perceived conflict of powers between the Executive and the Legislative branches in the State of São Paulo.
