IFRRO/WIPO International Survey on Text and Image Copyright Levies

IFRRO has published with WIPO a joint study on Text and Image based Copyright Levies. It is the first comprehensive and detailed study of text and image levies (TI levies) world-wide. It analyzes the origins, scope and current use of these levies around the world, their role in ensuring easy legal access to copyright material, and shows how and why TI levies are different from audio and audio-visual private copying levies. The aim is to provide transparent information on the administration of the levy system with regard to authors, publishers, users of copyright works, manufacturers, importers, and other stakeholders.

European Parliament adopts report on private copying levies

The European Parliament has adopted the report on private copying levies drafted by MEP Françoise Castex, two weeks after its adoption by the Legal Affairs Committee.
The report will not be legally binding for the Member States but it will contribute to the debate on copyright and express the opinion of MEPs on private copying levies.

The scope of the report is limited to private copying levies and is clearly not related to reprography levies.
