EUA is cautious about new EU Copyright Directive
The European University Association (EUA) has reacted to the new EU Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market which was adopted by the European Parliament (EP) on 26 March 2019. EUA welcomes the strengthened exemptions for the education and research activities of European universities - the text and data mining exemption for research purposes has been made mandatory, and not-for-profit educational and scientific repositories have been excluded from the definition of "online content sharing service providers". However, the association remains cautious about the impact of the agreement on other sectors and society at large. EUA states it is unsure how the adopted Directive will impact the EU’s researchers, higher education teachers and students. It also sees possible complications arising through Brexit.
