Proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council
on certain permitted uses of orphan works

- Approval of the final compromise text


I am trying to figure out what Article 1.2c means:

Article 1.2c. This Directive does not interfere with any arrangements
concerning the management of rights at national level.

Any hints appreciated.

Best regards.
