The Copyright Directive was implemented in the UK on 31 October 2003. The resulting changes to UK law have affected the basic rights relevant to uses of copyright material, namely the rights of reproduction and electronic communication to the public, such as digital broadcasting and 'on demand' services. The type and scope of permitted exceptions to these rights has been limited. In addition, legal protection is now available for technological measures used to safeguard rights and copyright material, such as copy protection systems and digital watermarks.
The UK implementation of this EU Directive affects: Publishers; Authors and performers; Record and film producers; Broadcasting organisations and cable operators; Online service providers and network providers; Hardware, software and technological protection system suppliers; Libraries, educational and research establishments.
