The webinar will focus on the complex and fragmented EU copyright framework which applies to activities relevant for Text and Data Mining purposes. The general legal landscape will be briefly presented in order to identify limits and opportunites offered by current copyright rules. Regarding the former, the webinar will illustrate which rights (e.g. right of reproduction and right of distribution) can be triggered by TDM activities and what this entails. Regarding the latter, available exceptions and limitations will be analysed in an attempt to offer an overview of when (and where) an existing copyright exception could cover TDM activities. This part will include the recent draft proposal for a Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market and other national initiatives. Finally, copyright licences and the ways in which the OpenMinTeD project intends to favour legal and metadata interoperability among the many different and often incompatible licences and terms of use will be discussed.
