This document is meant to be an input to the European Parliament regarding the amendments submitted to the EP’s Evaluation Report of the implementation of Directive 2001/29/EC. Its aim is to provide the position of OpenForum Europe in regards to the amendments linked to our organisation’s top priorities in regards to copyright policy, namely hyperlinking/browsing, text and data mining and private copy levies. Other issues, such as public domain, new compensation schemes and technological measures which hinder effective exercise of exceptions and limitations, are also addressed in this document.
