EU Court: Libraries can digitize, but not distribute
from Publishers Weekly
A European Union court held that European libraries can digitize works in their collections but, without an explicit exception by a member state, are limited to displaying digitized works at dedicated reading terminals. The directive comes after a German court asked the Court of Justice of the European Union for clarity on a pending case, in which a German university is being sued by a publisher for digitizing works for use at "electronic reading posts."
