DIGITALEUROPE urges MEPs to consider broader text and data mining (TDM) exception in Copyright reform

DIGITALEUROPE urges MEPs to consider broader text and data mining (TDM) exception in Copyright reform

“If the legislators are serious about bringing innovation and deploying AI for the benefits of the European society, they need to understand that data analytics is a must”, said Cecilia Bonefeld-Dahl, Director-General of DIGITALEUROPE.

“It is a win-win scenario, MEPs can decide for broader EU-wide exception for text and data mining without any damage to the investment and rights in the creative sector on Copyright. We urge the European Parliament to broaden the EU-wide exception for text and data mining so it embraces companies and researchers, making it possible for Europe to innovate on AI and data-driven services while still achieving the right level of protection for the creative sector”, she added.
