Summary of Developments[edit]

(e.g. Outline general developments finishing with Day/Month/Year.)

15/4/2019:The Estonian Government's public statement on the new directive was included in a joint statement made by the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Poland, Italy and Finland two days before it entering into law on 17/4/2019.

Statement by Estonia

Estonia has always supported the objective of the Directive, namely better access to content online, the functioning of key exceptions in the digital and cross-border environment and the better and balanced functioning of the copyright marketplace.

However, Estonia considers that the final text of the Directive does not strike a sufficient balance between different interests in all aspects. Furthermore, Estonia has recently had parliamentary elections and our new government and parliament have not been able to give their position on the final compromise text.''


(e.g. Amend existing laws, repeal entirely existing law etc.)
