Article 17 has been a (the) leading buzzword of the copyright reforms of the European Union in recent years (at least half a decade already). The transposition deadline has now passed. As of June 6, 2021, however, only a handful of Member States have implemented Directive 2019/790/EU (Copyright in the Digital Single Market; hereinafter CDSMD). Indeed, countries lagging behind might face infringement proceedings. In light of this, and also the fact that the Commission Guidance on Article 17 has now been published (a few days before the transposition deadline), Member States have shifted to higher speed in their legislative process.
