New benchmarks show status of implementation of new EU directives on copyright in 12 member states 16 December 19

Cullen International has just published two new benchmarks showing the progress on the transposition in 12 EU member states of two recently adopted directives in the field of copyright: the Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market and the Directive on the exercise of copyright and related rights applicable to certain online transmissions for broadcasting organisations and retransmissions of television and radio programmes. 

Both directives need to be implemented by 7 June 2021. The research shows that in 9 countries a debate has already started on the implementation of the directive on Copyright and the Digital Single Market and that France has already implemented the rules on press publishers’ rights.

Concerning the other directive, 6 out of 12 member states have started the debate and Belgium has already introduced rules on direct injection.  Cullen International will update these benchmarks regularly throughout 2020.
