Did the EU Commission hide a study that did not suit their agenda?

In 2013, the European Commission announced a launch of a study on copyright – and never published its results. Julia Reda, a Member of the European Parliament, tabled a freedom of information request on this issue and was eventually granted access to the study. Even though the independent study was finalised in 2015 and financed by public funds, the European Commission failed to publish the research.
