France - Implementation of Article 17 of the 2019 Copyright Directive

On 12 May 2021, the French Government issued a Statutory Instrument  implementing Articles 17 to 23 of the 2019 Copyright Directive in the Digital Single Market.  After several delays due, amongst others, to the Covid-19 lockdown, the Government has decided to legislate by Statutory Instrument.  The implementation of Article 17 has not significantly deviated from the Copyright Directive, although some requirements are scheduled to be further clarified.
