EERA Supports Open Letter "EU copyright reform threatens Open Access and Open Science"

- 22.2.2018 -

EERA supports an international coalition who wants to halt the adoption of harmful provisions found in the current draft of the Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market, and certain amendments, which could threaten Open Access and Open Science.

In the open letter, directed at the EU Parliament’s Legal Affairs Committee (JURI), the coalition urges for the removal of proposals that would restrict access to research and place administrative and legal burdens on institutional repositories.
