Portugal

As of 7 June 2021, Portugal has not yet implemented nor initiated a public consultation on the implementation of the DSM directive

Procedure:

0 points

As of June 7, 2021, Portugal has not initiated any public consultation on the implementation, nor did it share any draft law. In August 2020 the Ministry of Culture asked selected stakeholders (mostly rights holders) to send feedback with a view to conduct a public consultation in October 2020 (which did not take place). Upon request by civil society organizations, some were able to share their views too. The Minister of Culture has met with collecting societies; meeting requests sent by civil society organizations to the Ministry of Culture have been left unanswered.

Portugal has shown no interest, so far, in discussing publicly the implementation of the DSM directive. As of June 7, 2021, no public consultation has taken place; no working groups were formed to bring in the views of stakeholders that have different interests on the implementation of the directive; and no draft implementation proposal has been presented to the public.

Civil society representatives have been treated less favourably by the Ministry of Culture than representatives of rightholders: the latter have been invited to provide feedback on the implementation and have been granted the opportunity to meet with the Minister of Culture, while meeting requests sent by civil society organisations to the Ministry of Culture have been left unanswered. This conduct is particularly disappointing because Portugal is taking over the EU Council Presidency during the first half of 2021, and we would have expected the government to lead by example in such an important EU law reform.
