This presentation gives an overview of current progress in copyright reform in Europe in 2014. It describes the outcome of the EC’s Copyright consultation and examines the reaction of research organisations to positions on copyright and TDM taken by WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organisation) and the EPC (European Publishers Council). The paper notes the failure of the Commission to issue a Copyright reform White Paper in July 2014. The presentation then looks at the need for an Exception for Text and Data Mining in EU legislation. It examines the call from research organisations to Elsevier to withdraw its TDM licence. The paper concludes by plotting a course of action for research organisations in 2014-15 to achieve copyright reform and an Exception for TDM.
