LIBER releases copyright position statement

LIBER, the Association of European Libraries,  has set out its position on European copyright reform through a statement which prioritises three high-level principles.

The principles are:

  1. Copyright should foster, not hinder, innovation and competitiveness.
  2. Access to and use of publicly funded research should not be unduly restricted by copyright.
  3. Preservation of, and access to, cultural heritage must be supported by copyright exceptions.
