"The European Parliament has paved the way for a controversial overhaul of digital copyright rules in Europe, voting to give researchers freer rein to use test and data mining computer programmes to analyse millions of research papers at once... However, it was “deeply regrettable” that the Parliament did not fully support new technologies, said Jeannette Frey, president of LIBER, an association of research libraries. “This restricted [mining] exception will undermine the European Commission’s broader efforts to support open science and artificial intelligence. It will also hinder valuable collaborations between universities, businesses and the public sector,” she said."
