LIBER Signs Copyright Reform Position Paper

Posted: 11-07-2016 Topics: Copyright Reform

LIBER — along with other European library and cultural heritage organisations — has released a position paper ahead of the European Commission’s upcoming proposals on reforming the current copyright framework (expected in autumn 2016).

The paper sets out recommendations for copyright reform, including:

  • Further harmonisation of exceptions and limitations related to libraries, education and research;
  • A clear exception for text and data mining;
  • Greater protection for library users’ rights against technological measures or contract terms that otherwise restrict them.
