Multiple organizations (main applicant was Alex Handy from the The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment MADE) petitioned to renew the exemption for video games for which outside server support has been discontinued. The petitions stated that individuals still need the exemption to engage in continued play and libraries and museums continue to need the exemption to preserve and curate video games in playable form.

This is the final decision document. Check also out the very interesting transcript of the hearing. Hopefully this will serve as a good example for our European law makers.
