  • Entry into force - Copyright Directive

On the 17th of April 2019, the Copyright Directive (2019/790) entered into force. It aims to harmonise further Union law applicable to copyright and related rights in the internal market, taking into account, in particular, digital and cross-border uses of protected content. It also lays down rules on exceptions and limitations to copyright and related rights. The Directive is based on a Commission proposal from the 14th of September 2016.
