Draft Motion for a European Parliament Resolution on private copying levies (2013/2114(INI))

The AK welcomes the initiative of the European Parliament to call on the Commission to introduce a harmonized approach for copyright levies.
Positionspapiere | Konsumenten

Whereas in general, many of the proposals are worth supporting especially those relating to transparency of levies with respect to consumers, AK regrets that the proposal endorses the current system of copyright levies. With this respect, the draft motion takes a very conservative approach, excluding the evaluation of new, alternative levy systems. With such approach, it is very doubtful that any of the current questions – leading constantly to law suits on national and EU-level – can be avoided in the future, as it does not offer any solution for the problem of double payments in the digital single market nor to the problem of payment obligations in cases where no damage within the sense of the Copyright Directive occurred.
