Universities and Science Minister Chris Skidmore has said that the UK will not implement the EU Copyright Directive after the country leaves the EU.
Several companies have criticised the law, which would hold them accountable for not removing copyrighted content uploaded by users, if it is passed.

EU member states have until 7 June 2021 to implement the new reforms, but the UK will have left the EU by then.
The UK was among 19 nations that initially supported the in its final European Council vote in April 2019.


I am of the belief that this is more a political gambit to keep the doors open for big technology vendors prior to striking any of the proposed trade deals that will need to occur once the UK has fully left the EU trading block , I expect normal policy to re-appear further into the game  :whistle:
