Comment Neelie
[...] You, as publishers, are very active in the search for operational and legal solutions. The recent Commission-brokered Memorandum of Understanding on out-of-commerce works, for example, was a great example of cooperation between stakeholders. It should encourage voluntary collective licences; and enable libraries, publishers, authors and collecting societies to digitise books that are out-of-commerce, and make them available even across borders.
