Principle or compromise? : understanding the original thinking behind statutory licence and levy schemes for private copying by Katerina Gaita( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
In the era of digital technology, the issue of priavte copying - copying undertaken for non-commercial, non-public use - is once again topical. A statutory licence and levy is one possible solution to the apparently diverging interests of copyright owners and private copiers. Such a scheme effectively grants a general licence to copy copyright protected works for priavte use, in exchange for which levies are imposed on recording equipment and/or media. This paper examines the history of, as well as the rationales and principles behind, the first statutory licence and levy for private copying - the German scheme of 1965. An analysis of the German experience presents a possible solution to, and at the very least an alternative conception of, the issue of private copying. It sheds new light on contemporary Australian discussion of private copying in the digital era
