Copyright fees

26. 03. 2009

Copyright fees

In July, the Defender responded to several filings in the matter of the decree of the Ministry of Culture No. 488/2006 Coll. concerning the collection of copyright fees on so-called flash disks. Since the Defender had dealt with the issue before, he again addressed the Minister of Culture with a request for information as to whether the Ministry of Culture would amend the decree and by what date the potential amendment would be effective. He simultaneously pointed out the most frequent problems contested by complainants (in particular the inappropriateness of the correlation between the amount of the copyright fee and the capacity of the storage medium). In this context, the Minister of Culture submitted to the Defender a draft amendment to the decree that should be soon submitted for amendment proceedings and responds to technological progress in the area of data capacities.
