The European Commission published its long-awaited guidance on article 17 of the copyright directive on 4 June 2021, just days ahead of the official implementation deadline. We published a statement, with our main message to member states being the same as before: to implement article 17 swiftly and faithfully according to the text of the directive to ensure maximum harmonisation. We have also produced a first assessment of the guidance for members which is available in our members-only resource section.
