Published on

Digital-Single-Market - Copyright Status & EBLIDA
Steen Bording Andersen, president of the Danish Library Association

In the Nordic library organizations we believe that international cooperation can create a better world. That's one of the reasons why we meet, once a year, with all the other Nordic countries, discussing how we can strengthen cooperation between libraries for the benefit of people and society. (And I don't mention Trump at all)

This year we meet in Copenhagen and have a series of presentations and discussions, which you can see more about here

  1. 1. Digital Single Market Nordic Meeting - Thursday 18th January 2018 Steen Bording Andersen
  2. 2. Claude Juncker: 15 July 2014 Why a DIGITAL SINGLE MARKET? “I believe that we must make much better use of the great opportunities offered by digital technologies, which know no borders. If we do this, we can ensure that European citizens will soon be able to use their mobile phones across Europe without having to pay roaming charges. We can ensure that consumers can access services, music, movies and sports events on their electronic devices wherever they are in Europe and regardless of borders…” European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, Political Guidelines, 15 July 2014

The EU Parliament as such will vote on the report • Spring 2019 EU Parliament Election
  4. 4. Problematic Areas • Art 3 Text and Data Mining • Art 4 Illustration for Teaching • Art 5 Public interest Copying, Dedicated Terminals and Document Supply • Art 7-9 Out of commerce works • Art 11 Ancillary Rights • Art 13 Content Filtering
  5. 5. The missing article • eLending European legislation and exemptions in this area would provide legal clarity - and allow libraries both to respond to citizens demand - and promote literature and content to new ‘digital born’ readers.
  6. 6. What to do from here? • EBLIDA • National Members of Parliament • Next Phase – National legislation
