The Commission wants to put Europe’s cultural heritage on the internet by turning books, photos, records and films into a massive digital library. It has launched a consultation that invites suggestions for legislative measures that could facilitate the digitisation and subsequent accessibility of copyright material while respecting the legitimate interests of authors.
The Information Society and Media Commissioner Viviane Reding believes that the existence of such an internet library project is paramount to the collective memory and identity of Europe, and there will be efforts to make the material in Europe’s libraries and archives accessible to all.
