On 23 and 24 June, the Dutch association “Stichting De Thuiskopie” is organising an international conference on private copying to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the private copying exception in the Dutch copyright act.


In light of the recent publication of the latest report on Private Copying by Stichting de Thuiskopie together with WIPO, the conference on 23 and 24 June will deal with the following topics:

  • Trends in copyright levies revenues and tariffs.
  • The impact of the digital environment on private copying schemes.
  • Policy issues and legal developments within the EU.
  • Scope of the private copying exception, cloud storage.

GESAC’s General Manager, Véronique Desbrosses, will be giving the keynote address and Dr. Tobias Holzmüller from our German member GEMA will participate in the panel on private copies in the cloud.
