Description The paper introduces the Directive (EU) 2019/790 on copyright and related rights in the Digital Single Market and analyses its impact on repositories of grey literature. The focus is on the provisions of Article 2, Article 6 and Article 8, which are the most relevant parts from the perspective of cultural heritage institutions. The paper concludes that repositories of grey literature and cultural heritage institutions that store and share pieces of grey literature online will benefit from the new legislation, which will bring more legal certainty in dealing with digital cultural heritage. The new rules will also improve legal certainty in cross border cooperation.
