We believe that at the echo level among practitioners and recipients of the rules of conduct (without preexisting significantly similar legal provisions), the „Copyright Directive” will give birth in the next two years (until the transposition deadline, June 2021 respectively) of debates, fears and scenarios regarding applicability and effects. Of course, if the action for annulment filed by the Government of the Polish Republic against the most sensitive provisions, respectively against those included in art. 17 paragraph 4 lit. b) and c) of the Directive, will not be admitted by the European Court of Justice. Voted in the European Parliament, while Romania held the rotating Presidency at the Council of the European Union, on March 26, 2019, after wide debates and a fairly close vote (348 votes in favor, 274 votes against and 24 abstentions), Directive (EU)) 2019/790 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 April 2019 on copyright and related rights in the digital single market and amending Directives 96/9 / EC and 2001/29 / EC is a normative challenge of copyright and of related rights.
