The end of an odyssey: The German Act to adapt copyright law to the requirements of the Digital Single Market (Lexology)

Lexology: The end of an odyssey: The German Act to adapt copyright law to the requirements of the Digital Single Market. “The German Act to adapt copyright law to the requirements of the Digital Single Market will enter into force on 7 June 2021 – as the first national transposition of the Digital Single Market Directive (‘DSM Directive’). It will result in major amendments of German Copyright law and is the attempt to not only unite conflicting interests of rights holders, authors and internet users but also to adjust the partially outdated German copyright law to the digital age. As a result, a huge variety of partly controversially discussed new provisions and amendments will be implemented. We have looked into it and share with you some of the highlights of the new regulation.”
