New international survey on private copying

WIPO and Stichting de Thuiskopie, the Dutch Collective Management Organisation for private copying, have recently published the International Survey on Private Copying - Law and Practice 2015. This survey provides a global overview of an important element of copyright and related rights infrastructure, the private copying compensation. It also aims to facilitate evidence-based decision-making and to offer an update on important developments in the private copying law and practice of countries which have such an exception in the law. This year’ survey contains legal and practical information on private copying systems up until 2015 and revenue data until 2014.
