Information Guide concerning Case C-401/19 from the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), which relates to Article 17 of Directive (EU) 2019/790 on copyright and related rights in the Digital Single Market (DSM).
Directive (EU) 2019/790 lays down rules aimed at harmonising further EU law applicable to copyright and related rights in the framework of the internal market. It also lays down rules on exceptions and limitations to copyright and related rights, on the facilitation of licences, as well as rules aiming to ensure a well-functioning marketplace.
Poland decided to launch a legal challenge before the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) right after the adoption of the Directive in May 2019. The challenge raises a plea alleging infringement of the right to freedom of expression and information, requesting the annulment of parts of Article 17 which provides for new rules on content-sharing platforms.
