European R&I Community Urgently Calls to Revise the TDM Exception in the Copyright Reform

Science Europe is collaborating with other stakeholders in the European Research and Innovation community to call on Members of the European Parliament’s Legal Affairs Committee (JURI) and the Council to secure Europe’s leadership in the data economy by revising the Text and Data Mining (TDM) exception in the draft of the Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market. An open letter, released by the community on 26 September, calls for the TDM exception to apply to any person that has legal access to the content (the principle of ‘the right to read should be the right to mine’), in turn this will help the European data economy grow, fostering innovation and research, and encouraging entrepreneurship and support for SMEs. Read the full open letter here.
