Positionspapier Joint statement on copyright levies in the digital single market
Current levy systems which lack transparency and are unfair for consumers should be reformed as soon as possible. AGEFE, ANITEC, APDETIC, Bitkom, FFTI, IT&Telekomföretagen, Nederland ICT, PIIT, SEPE, SFIB, techUK and ZIPSEE all commit to help overhaul the current systems for a short-term transitional period. It will not solve the overall systemic problem if we make only incremental changes. New alternative models must be considered to replace old levy schemes.
