A positive vote for copyright
On 12 September, Members of the European Union (MEPs) approved the new European Copyright Directive.
Earlier this month, our CEO Robert Ashcroft wrote to inform you that on Wednesday 12 September, the European Parliament passed the new European Copyright Directive by a significant margin, 438 votes for with 226 against.
The Parliament will now agree a final draft of the Copyright Directive with the European Council and the European Commission, known as the trilogue process. Representatives from all three will meet to merge the approved amendments into one final legislative text.
We’ll be publishing more details on what it means for members and the legislative timeline in the forthcoming months.
More details on the transfer of value and our work with UK Government, Parliament, the European Commission, European Parliament and international bodies can be found in our influencing policy area.
