The economics of online news aggregation and neighbouring rights for news publishers

The request was partially successful.

Dear European Political Strategy Centre,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

On October 25, 2016, the JRC presented a draft paper called "The economics of online news aggregation and neighbouring rights for news publishers" to EPSC. I am requesting all information held by EPSC concerning both this paper (as well as comments, analysis, position papers, memos, etc). or any information concerning copyright or neighbouring rights for press publishers.

Yours faithfully,

Julia Reda
