The European Commission has released Economic Impacts of Adapting Certain Limitations and Exceptions to Copyright and Related Rights.
Here's an excerpt from the summary:
The first part of the study is the report by Charles River Associates "Assessing the economic impacts of adapting certain limitations and exceptions to copyright and related rights in the EU" (Langus et al., 2013, henceforth "CRA Methodology Report"), which establishes a methodology to assess exceptions and limitations to copyright. . . .
In turn, the present report uses the aforementioned methodology to assess the economic impacts of specific policy options in several topics of interest, in view of providing policy guidance on these topics. This report focuses on the following topics:
- Digital preservation by cultural heritage and educational institutions;
- The provision of remote access by cultural heritage and educational institutions to their collections for the benefit of their patrons;
- E-lending by publicly accessible libraries;
- Text and data mining for the purpose of scientific research;
- Reproductions made by natural persons for private uses.
