Implementation of the Copyright Directive

Question for written answer E-004603/2020
to the Commission
Rule 138
Alexandr Vondra (ECR)

There is an ongoing debate in Czechia regarding the implementation of Directive (EU) 2019/790 on copyright and related rights in the digital single market. Publishers want the mandatory collective management of the rights granted under Article 15 to be allowed.

Does Article 12 of Directive 2019/790, Article 5 of Directive 2001/29/EC, Directive 2014/26/EU or any other EU law prevent the Member States from establishing either a mandatory collective management of the right of internet search engines to display a press publication in the results of an online search (i.e. not only single words or very short extracts), or a mandatory collective management of the right of press publishers to remuneration for the use and display of the content of a press publication in the results of an online search (i.e. not only single words or very short extracts), without affecting the other aspects of the exclusive right of press publishers to their press publications (this second option should not be understood to mean that the exclusive right is reduced to the right to remuneration)?
