EU Council approves copyright reform, paving way for national laws

2019-04-15 12:10:00| Telecompaper Headlines

(Telecompaper) The European Council has given the final approval to the reform of its copyright rules for online content. The move follows approval by the European Parliament in March. The controversial reform increases the liability for internet platforms accepting content uploaded by users. It also provides for increased remuneration for publishers from online aggregators. The EU Council said that member states will have 24 months to transpose the rules into national law, following the signature and publication of the directive in the Official Journal of the EU.
