Question for written answer P-000652-16
to the Commission
Rule 130
Sylvie Guillaume (S&D) , Virginie Rozière (S&D)

 Subject:  Reform of copyright for libraries
 Answer in writing 

The recent publication of the Commission Communication on the modernisation of copyright in Europe shows that the Commission wishes to move towards a greater harmonisation of exceptions and limitations with regard to copyright in Europe.

We appreciate the fact that exceptions and limitations linked to knowledge, research and education are a key priority for the future.

In view of the above, will the Commission say how it intends to address:
The issue of e-lending through libraries, as set out in Article 53 of the European Parliament’s own-initiative report adopted in plenary sitting on 9 July 2015 (2014/2256 (INI));
The issue of an exception allowing libraries to digitise content for the purposes of consultation, cataloguing and archiving (Article 54 of the European Parliament's own-initiative report) and that of the protection of legal exceptions and limitations that cannot be waived by contractual terms;
The issue of cross-border access to library content?
