Newly proposed EC Copyright Directive takes steps to facilitating an Open Science Europe

flag_yellow_highThe European Commission (EC) is taking important steps to support the Digital Single Market in Europe through its recently published proposal for a Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market, published on 14 September 2016.

SPARC Europe welcomes these. Strong copyright legislation will facilitate the production and dissemination of new content. It thereby has the potential to boost the visibility and reputation of Europe as a strong research leader.
