EU's copyright do-over delayed a month; PC World, 2/3/14

Jennifer Baker, PC World; EU's copyright do-over delayed a month:
"The planned overhaul of the European Union’s copyright laws has been set back by a month as a public consultation was extended.
The European Commission had asked for feedback by Feb. 5, but following strong lobbying from all sides, has decided to extend that to March 5. The internal market department said that some interested parties had asked for more time to finalize and submit their contributions...
LIBER, an organization that represents the library community, has also created a guide to help people answer the consultation. “Responding to the consultation is critical because its outcomes will affect anyone who works with researchers, or who cares about future library services and access to cultural heritage,” said the organization in a statement.
The consultation has since received thousands of responses."
