Debates on Private Copy Remuneration

July 7

On July 6, the State Agency for Intellectual Property ("AGEPI") launched public discussions on the private copy remuneration. AmCham and interested members have participated in this consultation, calling attention to the fact that the law is vague and provides leeway for extensive interpretation.

In particular, concerns were voiced with regard to (i) an extremely high amount of the private copy remuneration (i.e. the highest in Europe), (ii) the unclear and unpredictable list of electronic equipment that falls under the legal regime, and (iii) a duplication of payments from the fiscal perspective.

In the past years, AmCham has consistently asked for amendments to the Law on copyright and related rights, in an effort to avoid an escalation of the situation.
