Dear colleagues

The European Parliament's amendments to the draft Copyright in the Digital Single Market is to be voted on this Wednesday in Plenary session in Strasbourg. It contains crucial provisions concerning libraries, archives, cultural heritage institutions, educational establishments and research organisations. 

On behalf of the coalition of pan-European library organisations (EBLIDA, IFLA and LIBER), the Coalition of Open Access Repositories (COAR), SPARC Europe and the European University Association (EUA), that have been lobbying together on your behalf during these later stages of the Directive’s passage, I am asking that you to please support their advocacy in your capacity as individuals (if you prefer you don't need to say for which institution you work) by sending the template letter (adapted to suit you) with its table of recommendations that is contained in IFLA Policy & Advocacy Manager, Stephen Wyber's email (attached) to all UK MEPs, preferably today (Monday) or at latest tomorrow. A spreadsheet is also attached with all MEPs emails by country. If you think your institutions would also wish to write to UK MEPs in their own capacity please alert them to this campaign.

This vote is expected to be the last Parliamentary vote on its amendments which decides the Parliament’s detailed position on the Directive. The Directive will then move into trilogue negotiations to reconcile the three versions of the Directive that will be in existence - the Parliament version, the Council of Ministers’ version (negotiated between Member States in a less transparent manner than Parliament) and the Commission’s original draft. Post-trilogues the final version returns to Parliament for final adoption. This Parliament vote is therefore crucial and it is important that the library and information community generates a large volume of organisational and individually sent messages to show legislators what we want. Bear in mind that, despite BREXIT, the UK will probably adopt much of this Directive as it wishes to stay complaint with EU copyright.

Thank you all for your help.

Barbara Stratton
