New edition of IFRRO/WIPO International Survey on Text and Image Copyright Levies published

A new edition of the ‘International Survey of Text and Image Copyright Levies’, jointly published by WIPO and IFRRO is now available.

It builds on and updates the first survey, which was published in May 2014, and analyses the origins, scope and current use of these levies around the world, and their role in ensuring easy legal access to copyright material. It also shows how and why TI levies are different from audio and audio-visual private copying levies.  It now includes 2014 figures and new information such as the HP-REPROBEL judgement  and new issues such as Illegal copies, Copies from an illegal source and Questions concerning RRO distribution schemes.
