“Can we think of a Copyright system that provides equitable compensation to all involved parties, while maximising access to scientific resources and ensuring sustainable value production? Is the solution within the existing Copyright system or shall we look outside of it? Is Copyright reform attainable, and if yes, should it be incremental or radical? Finally, are new forms of legislation, such as data governance policy and legislation (from Open Data to Platform regulation), providing us with a new framework of thinking as to how we could achieve the desired balance between different copyright holders?
The Copyright for Open Science (C4OS), an initiative of OpenAIRE aims at addressing these questions in a series of three meetings/ workshops, where legal scholars, policy makers, publishers, creators, researchers and information scientists share their views as to how an equitable, sustainable and just model for Open Science may be achieved. …”
