Description This paper explores the legal possibilities of users to text and data mine repositories of grey literature for scientific research without the consent of the grey literature repository operator or the holders of rights to the content stored therein. In the first part of this short paper we briefly introduce the relevant intellectual property rights. In the second part, the current exceptions to these exclusive rights are discussed and evaluated. The third part critically analyses the suggested mandatory exception for text and data mining in the European Commission’s proposal for a new directive on copyright in the Digital Single Market.
