New © Provisions Must Not Hamper Software Development & Sharing – Copybuzz

Summary:

We believe it is important to raise the alarm on the threat that the current proposal raises for players in the software industry, and consequently for our entire society. Those threats range from obstacles to the development of new technologies which would result from the blocking of text and data mining (article 3); to the serious obstacle to collaborative software development (article 13) which we analysed in detail here. This copyright reform has been devised primarily with the interest of cultural industry players in mind and we must avoid major collateral damage from this approach. A total exclusion of software from the scope of article 13 and the removal of any restrictions to text and data mining (article 3) are an absolute necessity.
