The UK Intellectual Propert Office (IPO) has released some draft
legislation for technical review that may be of interest. It concerns new
allowances for:

1.) 'non-commercial data analysis' (which I would assume to specifically
include text mining and content mining).

2.) exceptions for education

3.) exceptions for research libraries and archives

The IPO welcomes answers to the questions posed in each document and any
specific drafting suggestions by 2 August 2013. Comments can be submitted
by email to copyrightconsultation at ipo.gov.uk

The IPO will also be holding a series of open meetings in the week
commencing 22 July 2013 to give an opportunity for discussion of the
drafts. Numbers will be limited so you are advised to book your place by
emailing copyrightconsultation at ipo.gov.uk.
