As of June 7, 2021, a draft implementation law already went through a first reading in the Parliament and the Ministry of Culture is now preparing a final proposal

Procedure:

3 points

The government set up a stakeholder working group with no civil society representatives apart from libraries, in 2019, to discuss the implementation. In 2020, after releasing the draft, the IP Office ran a public consultation, receiving more than 700 submissions (all published afterwards). During that period, the IP Office also held a virtual public event to present the bill. A second draft was then prepared, but did not reflect most of the civil society feedback. The new draft was tabled in the Parliament for a first reading in late 2020, and the Ministry of Culture is now preparing a final draft.

As of June 7, 2021, a draft implementation law already went through a first reading in the Parliament and the Ministry of Culture is now preparing a final proposal. The government ran a complete consultation process, but the civil society contributions were practically ignored.

Before starting the drafting process the government formed a stakeholder working group (with no civil society representatives apart from libraries). The Intellectual Property Office drafted the first law proposal and ran a public consultation, which received over 700 submissions. After this successful consultation, the IPO prepared a second draft, but most provisions that protect user rights remained unchanged between the first and second proposals. The proposal to implement Article 17, for example, does not contain any ex-ante safeguards for users rights or additional transparency provisions, and it does not narrow down the definition of platforms affected by these rules.
