Question for written answer E-002681-19
to the Commission
Rule 138
Marcel Kolaja (Verts/ALE)

 Subject:  Member States' obligation to ensure that users can effectively use exceptions and limitations, as provided for in Article 17(7) of Directive (EU) 2019/790
 Answer in writing 

In the context of the implementation of the Copyright Directive, does the Commission consider that Member States’ obligation to ensure that users can rely on existing copyright exceptions (as provided for by Article 17(7) of Directive (EU) 2019/790) can be fulfilled by a general provision informing users about existing exceptions and limitations in the terms of service of the online content-sharing service provider (OCSSP) whose services are used to host copyrighted content(1)? Or should the implementing legislation require that measures be put in place by OCSSPs to not only ensure that users are informed, but also that they can effectively use these exceptions and limitations without pre-emptive blocking by these OCSSPs?
