Copyright Levies

What role copyrights play for your products

Although hardly realized in public, manufacturers, importers and online vendors of IT/CE devices and storage media are subject to paying copyright levies on the basis of the European directive 2001/29/EG. In contrast to other product-related compliance legislations, CL rules show vivid dynamics and numerous changes in the many countries where they have been implemented. Reasons are ongoing tariff-negotiations, pending law suits and technological changes with impacts on functions and tariffs.
