EU Copyright Directive Lacks Support

The EU Directive 2001/29/EC (22 May 2001) “on the harmonisation of certain aspects of copyright and related rights in the information society” has only two signatories as the deadline for its adoption came, and went. Only Greece and Denmark agreed to implement the EU’s counterpart to the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), much to the disappointment of software, music and film industry lobbyists who have worked to obtain support for wider implementation of the directive.
