Abstract: Digital copyright protection is not only the key problem of information resource management and service, but also a hot issue in the research field of information resource management. Starting from the publication of the Green Paper on Copyright and Related Rights in the Information Society in 1995, the proection of European digital copyright has roughly gone through four stages: proposing the concept of digital copyright (1995-2000), identifying the concept of digital copyright (2001-2013), building the framework of digital copyright (2014-2015), completing the framework of information management and service (2016-2019). Finally, on the 17th of April 2019, the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union published the Copyright and Related Rights in the Digital Single Market and amending Directives. From the view of historical development, the directives present development trends as follows: increasing responsibilities of information platform, clarifying the rights of traditional publishers, rebalancing forces of different Internet platform, increasing copyright exception rules and integrating with international copyright treaties.
