The Austrian Article 17 implementation draft has made an important contribution to the discussion about implementing article 17 by showing a way that the approach first proposed in Germany can be integrated into copyright legislation of other Member States.

During the implementation process, the Austrian Ministry of Justice has shared drafts of various parts of the directive with stakeholders for comments and discussion. A consolidated draft of the implementation law has been published for public consultation in September 2021.


With regards to the implementation of Article 17 the Austrian proposal took up key elements first introduced in the German implementation drafts: a non-waivable direct remuneration right for authors and performers, the protection of minor uses from automated filters, the ability for users to flag uploads as legitimate, and the ability for users’ organizations to act against platforms that engage in structural over-blocking. The consolidated draft shared in September 2021 removed some of these elements but continues to follow the line established by the German implementation with ex-ante safeguards based on the same quantitative thresholds as established by the German implementation.
