The education sector needs better copyright reform

Tuesday, February 14, 2017 - 16:45

PL2020 has been following closely the current EU debate on copyright reform.  Along with 33 other educational organisations, we have signed up to a letter urging Members of European Parliament (MEPs) to ensure that copyright refrom benefits education.

We know that 24 million adults participate in non-formal learning activities in public libraries every year.  The European Commission's proposal for copyright reform considers an update of the exception for education, but does not go far enough.  We join Communia and other educational organisations in encouraging MEPs of the European Parliament to ensure copyright reform supports education in Europe.  Read (and share!) the letter here and Communia's blog post here.
