This may be related to the recently published (last week) report on the
implementation of the EU Copyright Directive amongst Member States. If
I am right, then the discussion won't be of interest to this Forum.

Anyone know anything about this?

"Europe's Digital Library experts set to focus on copyright today (18
April 2007)The EU's High Level Expert Group on Digital Libraries - which
includes, inter alia, stakeholders from the British Library, the
Deutsche Nationalbibliothek, the Federation of European Publishers and
Google - will present this afternoon an advisory report on copyright
issues to the European Commission. In addition, the group will discuss
today how to ensure more open access to scientific research and how to
improve public-private cooperation. The work of the High Level Group is
part of the European Commission's efforts to make Europe's rich cultural
and scientific heritage available online. For this purpose, the group
advises the Commission on issues regarding digitisation, online
accessibility and digital preservation of cultural material."
