The Court of Justice of the European Union has ruled that the concept of ‘fair compensation for copyright levies must be interpreted uniformly in all Member States which have a private copying exception and must be calculated on the basis of the criterion of the harm, if any, caused to authors of protected works by that exception, so levies should not be applied to equipment, devices and media not made available to private users and clearly reserved for uses other than private copying’.
