PRIVATE COPYING: THE ITALIAN COUNCIL OF STATE CONFIRMS THE LEGITIMACY.
The Italian Council of State (a legal-administrative
consultative body and ensures the legality of publici administration in Italy) reaffirms the legitimacy of the
private copying’s rates in force in our
country, confirming the case law already expressed by the TAR of Lazio with the
judgments delivered in 2012. One should still clarify the issue concerning
devices for professional use: the Council of State has asked the European Court of Justice a legal advice about the current
compensations’ pay back system adopted by SIAE.
