How Europeana came to embrace openness

  1. 1. How Europeana came to embrace openness PAUL KELLER, CREATIVE COMMONS SUMMIT 2015, SEOUL
  2. 2. Unmarked All Rights Reserved Unknown Creative Commons Public Domain
  3. 3. Europeana’s strategy for open access
  4. 4. Cultural Heritage Institutions in the digital environment
  5. 5. The primary purpose of cultural heritage institutions in the digital environment should be to maximize access to their collections.
  6. 6. Restricting access and reuse will not give institutions more control over the material in their collections… … becoming the most attractive online source will do.
  7. 7. Restricting access to collections is not a sustainable business model… … giving the public the best possible online experience is.
  8. 8. Claiming copyright over works in the Public Domain is not how institutions will manage to get credit for the preservation work they are doing… … it is by sharing their collections that they will achieve this.
  9. 9. Advocating for better copyright rules
  10. 10. We also need better copyright rules that make it easier for cultural heritage institutions to provide access to works that are in copyright but out of commerce
  11. 11. That is why Europeana is advocating for an update of the exceptions in the EU copyright directive benefitting cultural heritage institutions. CC BY (wikipedia user tpholland)
