Joint letter to the Prime Minister of Spain regarding private copy

CEDRO, IFRRO, AEPO-ARTIS, Eurocopya, EuroFIA, FSE, GESAC and SAA have jointly sent a letter to the Prime Minister of Spain, Mr Mariano Rajoy Brey. In the letter, the organisations ask him to reconsider the measures that the country has put in place in the last years regarding private copy and the compensation for authors and publishers. The letter addresses a recent decision of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) which ruled that the Spanish private copy compensation system that currently is being covered by Government funds, does not comply with the Directive 2001/29/CE.
