Abstract

This is our joint submission to the Norwegian consultation on the proposed changes to the Copyright Act, in part implementing the text and data mining (TDM) exceptions under Articles 3 and 4, and related measures under Article 7 of the Directive (EU) 2019/790 (CDSMD).

In our response, we comment on the welcome aspects of the proposal. In addition, we suggest to take into account the following points: a) the definition of TDM should be inserted, clarifying that, for the purposes of the Copyright Act, it includes the analysis of digital and digitised works; b) the categories of beneficiaries of the TDM exception for scientific research should be detailed and include independent researchers acting for non-commercial purposes and public-private partnerships; c) the TDM exception should allow the sharing of the ‘corpus’ generated for TDM purposes for related scientific activities; d) the opt-out mechanism in § 50 e should clarify that when the content is available online, the rightsholder can expressly reserve TDM only through machine-readable means; e) the notion of lawful access in § 50 f could clarify its relationship with the use of unlawful sources; f) protection against technological protection measures (TPMs) preventing making use of an exception or limitation under § 100 shall be secured for both TDM exceptions; g) the Opphavsrettsnemnda (former Vederlagsnemnda) should be designated as board (nemnd) to consider disputes arising under § 100.
