Recently the EU Parliament voted on the “Copyright Directive”.

I would like to know exactly which parties/individuals voted for and against this directive.

I have been looking for this information for over an hour online using various keywords but I have failed to locate such a list.

Is there a URL depicting this information?

Here is the relevant page on the website of the European Parliament. All votes are listed here. If the voting process is not anonymous, individual votes are recorded in the documents.

This is the link to all non-anonymous votes from Wednesday. The Copyright Directive had the following number: A8-0245/2018.

    Note that there first were lots of votes about proposed changes to the text. The final vote is on pages 38 to 39.

  • @chirlu Thank you for the note about pages 38-39. This document is confusing.

VoteWatch is a source I personally regularly use as they display all votes in a very user-friendly format. You can sort MEP's based on Member State and political group.

Here is the final vote for the Copyright Directive: https://www.votewatch.eu/en/term8-copyright-in-the-digital-single-market-draft-legislative-resolution-vote-commission-proposal-ordinar.html

("registration" is required but they only ask for email and don't verify it)

I do not work not have any affiliation with VoteWatch, I purely use them for easy acccessability.

    Wow, that is indeed very user friendly and exactly what I was looking for. Registration is annoying but other than that fantastic.
