The Commission's DSMS and CJEU case law: what relationship?

On 14 September the EU Commission unveiled its second copyright package aimed at improving the existing EU copyright framework as part of its Digital Single Market Strategy (DSMS).

Discussion has been focusing on the relationship between the new proposed directive and the existing body of legislation and the economic/legal rationale of the various initiatives. What however appears to have been left partly out of the debate is what relationship the DSM Directive has and will have with the existing body of case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU).
