Science Europe criticises EP vote on copyright
Science Europe, an association of European Research Funding Organisations (RFO) and Research Performing Organisations (RPO) based in Brussels, has expressed its disappointment with yesterday's vote of the European Parliament on copyright, claiming that the European Parliament did not sufficiently improve what Science Europe calls "the far too restrictive proposal" by the European Commission for text and data mining in Article 3 of the new Directive on Copyright.
Science Europe calls for a broad exception for TDM, stating that such an exception is needed to support researchers conducting cutting-edge scientific research, as they often work together with partners from private companies and society. Science Europe believes that anyone who has the right to read content, should also have the right to search and analyse it using automated means.
