With more than two years of delay, Poland has implemented the EU directive on collective management of copyright and related rights and multi-territorial licensing of rights in musical works for online use in the internal market. The Directive was implemented under the Act on collective management of copyright and related rights, which entered into force on 19 July 2018.
