The EU copyright Directive was adopted by the Council of Ministers
on 9 April 2001, after more than three years of negotiation. All nine
compromise amendments introduced by the European Parliament
during the second reading on 14 February 2001 were adopted. The
Directive will be published in the Official Journal (OJ) of the EU
within a couple of weeks, from which time it will officially come into
European law. Member states then have 18 months to implement
the Directive into their own national law.
EBLIDA will be closely monitoring the national implementation
along with the EBLIDA copyright group.
