In the context of the public campaign on copyright reform, the Lifelong Learning Platform has endorsed the open letter to EU Ambassadors to ask for a comprehsnsive reform that bears in mind the implication of copyright in education settings. The network seeks to stop this rushed EU copyright reform and addressed itself to the EU Member State Ambassadors and Deputy Ambassadors ahead of the 27 April meeting of the Committee of the Permanent Representatives of the Governments of the Member States to the European Union (COREPER).
What is it all about? The copyright reform grants an exception only to formal education establishments: we want the exception to be applicable and mandatory to all education sectors and purposes. We believe that it is not about the user – teacher or others – the provides the education, but rather about the scope of the learning process.
