Open letter - The European Parliament must improve the Text and Data Mining (TDM) exception to benefit European research and innovation

Dear members of the JURI Committee,

We, members of 27 organisations representing universities, large and small technology companies, telecommunications and Internet services providers, startups and scaleups, libraries, scientific and research funding and performing organisations, open access publishers, investigative and data journalists and nonprofits, represent a key constituency of TDM users.

The diversity of our group reflects the reality of the European research ecosystem today, as the growing use of big data and artificial intelligence tools in research and innovation now result from the seamless collaboration between public and private organisations. In our view, this successful ecosystem will be penalised if the European Parliament’s work on TDM in the Copyright Directive continues in its current direction. Therefore, we wish to communicate our common position with regards to the TDM provisions.
