EU policy makers are currently debating a copyright reform which aims at providing an ecosystem combating online infringements effectively through the use of algorithms while fostering, amongst others, cultural diversity. As the goals set by the EU Commission for the Digital Single Market Strategy will only be met if cultural diversity is adequately preserved and promoted, it is important to analyse how algorithms as copyright enforcement mechanisms operate. This article provides an empirical analytical framework on how cultural diversity can be measured in this context of a copyright reform suited for the digital environment.
