OKFN has good relations with EC staff, I am not sure whether we have
formally communicated this issue to them. On "Open-Access" (Licences for
Europe) we have been fighting a battle to be allowed to mine content
without explictly requesting permissions (The right to read is the right to
Mine). This was bitterly contested by publishers. The current position is
that the proposed "licence" approach will not go forward (good) and that we
shall need to find another way. I think any careful submissions on this
will carry weight with the Commission.
