Compromise agreement reached on Copyright Reform legislation, providing safeguards for Open Science - SPARC Europe
AThomas's bookmarks 2019-02-18
"This week the EU agreed on a compromise draft for the Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market. This bears evidence that much of what we were fighting for – in the way of Open Science – has been achieved. This is a definite win, as earlier proposed legislation could have been of great concern for researchers across Europe. However, it is worth noting that our efforts were aimed at improving a piece of legislation that we view largely as unfavourable to research and society."
