BREAKING: EU Parliament adopts DSM Directive

This morning, after a process lasted over 2.5 years, the European Parliament adopted the latest version of the proposal for a Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market (the text will be also made available here).

Following a debate, 348 MEPs voted in favour of the directive, while 274 voted against it and 36 abstained.

It will now be for the Member States to approve Parliament’s decision in the coming weeks. 

If the Member States accept the text (this is a formality), the directive will be published in the Official Journal and come into effect.

Then Member States will have 2 years to transpose it into their own laws.

This most likely means that 'battlefield' will move now from Brussels and Strasbourg to the individual EU countries.

A press conference on today's vote with the rapporteur Axel Voss and MEPs Helga Trupel and Sajjad Karim will be held at 15.00 CET and can be viewed here. More on today's vote here.

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
