EBLIDA: Copyright reform - Why should libraries care?

The judgement of the Court of Justice of the European Union in November [2017] has seen little if any progress towards effective solutions to allow libraries to lend eBooks. Moreover, the decision does not clarify if libraries are allowed to override contract terms or circumvent technological protection measures which prevent them from lending legally acquired content, in line with the one-copy-one-user model established by the Court. European legislation in this area would reduce legal uncertainty and allow libraries both to respond to demand, and to bring new readers in touch with new writers.
