Private Copying - Assessing harm and implementing alternatives to copyright levies

Private Copying - Assessing harm and implementing alternatives to copyright levies

SUMMARY

1. DIGITALEUROPE encourages the European Commission and the EU Member States to initiate comprehensive reform and start a process of phasing out device-based levies systems.

2. Compensation for private copying must be based on actual and demonstrable harm, and no compensation is due in case of minimal harm.

3. DIGITALEUROPE believes the policy objective must now be to define a path towards compensation schemes that are closer to the reality of the digital age.
