Contained in these pages is a user friendly version of the The EU’s proposed Copyright Directive.
The Directive isn’t finalised however this application allows you to compare the Parliament’s (as adopted 12th September, 2018), Council’s (as adopted 25th May, 2018) and Commission’s (as adopted 14th September, 2016) positions side-by-side across all Articles and Recitals.
The next vote on the Copyright Directive will take place in the European Parliament in January. The Council of the European Union has also formed agreement on its position and will enter into discussions with the European Parliament.
While we’ve remained as faithful as possible to all hosted proposals, we’ve also given unique titles to each recital for the purposes of aiding navigation.
