European Court of Justice  to be consulted over the lending of e-books via public libraries

THE HAGUE – The court of The Hague will ask  questions to European Court of Justice over de lending of e-books via public libraries. The Dutch Public Libraries Association (VOB) filed a test case against the Leenrecht (Lending Right) Foundation to decide on the question whether lending rights apply to the lending of e-book or not.

The Court of the Hague today published its judgement.

The Court of the Hague shall ask a preliminary ruling to the European Court of Justice. The Dutch Public Libraries Association (VOB) and EBLIDA welcome this procedure that should lead to a declaration of principle that should apply to Public Libraries in other European countries as well.

More information available in English and in Dutch.
