Full steam ahead for the Commission and its modernisation of EU Copyright Law

Full steam ahead for the Commission and its modernisation of EU Copyright Law

 

After a quiet summer (Brexit aside...) we have now seen the publication of some further strands in the Commission's Digital Single Market strategy – including the proposed Copyright Directive and a draft Regulation following the Commission's review of the Satellite and Cable Directive ("CabSat Directive"). Leaked versions of both were published earlier this month with the official drafts announced yesterday. There are few changes from the leaked versions – and no real changes to the fundamental principles (except perhaps the recognition in the CabSat Regulation that rights-holders might be female as well as male!) - but we have flagged the key amendments below for readers of our previous note.
