Hi Katleen,


As discussed please find attached my 9th fact sheet.


It is about FOIA and IPRs and the re-use regime in between.


Any comments are welcome (in absence of Hans and the time constraints I am
just sending it to you for review).


As we discussed, you planned to do one on licencing (so we are up to 10, as
targeted). You may have seen that Ton actually drafted something hereon,
which you may want to elaborate upon.

Onderwerp: news item on very important decision Austrian Supreme Court in
the Compass case


Dear all,


First of all my apologies for not joining the CC yesterday. It is my
intention to be back in as of next week.


Meanwhile, I drafted a news item on a very important decision from the
Austrian Supreme Court, which you will find attached.


The decision is so important because it refers questions to the European
Court of Justice on the issue of own PSI exploitation by a PSB and the point
where such PSB enters into the danger zone of art 102 of the EU Treaty: the
prohibition to abuse a dominant position. In essence, it is about
demarcation of the public task.


The summary has been OK'd by the lawyers of Nikolaus Futter (CEO of


I am sure Katleen and I (and others) will be looking more deeply into this
case, but I think it is important to get something out right away for a
broad audience (you will notice that the text is not too legal, at least I
hope so).


Ton, can you publish it, and create links to the pdfs attached?


Kind regards,
