Private copying levies are an important revenue stream for creators and rightsholders. CISAC is committed to promoting its vitality as well as the legal, enforcement and operational environment that would support further growth in this area.

In November 2020, CISAC in collaboration with BIEM and Dutch society Stichting de Thuiskopie, published a new Private Copying Global Study that provides a complete and authoritative analysis of private copying systems around the world. The study, packed with information that stakeholders need to know on private copying, from the legal framework to the practical implementation of private copying, can be downloaded here.
