Updated EUA response to the European Commission proposal for a Directive on copyright in the Digital Single Market

The European University Association (EUA) welcomes the European Commission's (EC) 14 September 2016 proposal for a Directive on copyright in the Digital Single Market. EUA views the proposed Directive as an important step towards more modern copyright laws for the digital age, fair remuneration of authors and more transparency and balance in the publishing system. EUA particularly appreciates the three mandatory exceptions for research based on text and data mining (TDM); for cross-border off-site education; and for the preservation of cultural heritage currently included in the proposal.
