After four years of hearings, lobbying and negotiations, the European

new Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market– and the

mean for our customers and their organizations,” said Tracey Armstrong,
President and CEO, CCC.

The 2019 Copyright Directive covers business activities, including text
