EU - digitisation of books - links

The digitisation of books is very topical at the moment.

EU Commissioner Reding is keen - e.g. in a speech on 9 July 2009, she said: "if we do not reform our European copyright rules on orphan works and libraries swiftly, digitisation and the development of attractive content offers will not take place in Europe, but on the other side of the Atlantic".

There have been quite a few developments so I thought I would put together some links relating to recent initiatives or news on this subject, particularly in the EU / UK.
