Abstract

This research paper reproduces the study commissioned to CEIPI by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the Committee on Legal Affairs (JURI-Committee). It provides an analysis of the European Commission’s Proposal to introduce in Article 3 a mandatory exception to copyright allowing to carrying out text and data mining of protected works, assesses its positive and negative impacts and provides some suggestions for possible improvements. Advantages of introducing an “open clause” in EU copyright law on top of an enumerated list of limitations and exceptions to address some of the related problems are also reviewed.
