For another analogue device one needs no copyright tariff anymore: Sony will no longer produce its Walkman cassette player. Over the past years, Sony reported decreasing sales; therefore phasing out of the production was a logical consequence. According to this managerial decision, we can see the natural development of the scope for copyright levied products. New devices will be levied, older technologies will exit this field. Rapid changes especially in the CE-Sector are leading to a constant adaptation and modernisation of the scope and, accordingly, to the necessity of a constant monitoring. It is, however, to clarify for every single company how such a development will influence its reporting and financial planning in the future.
