Results of the legal actions brought by Auvibel

Faced with the growth in sales of blank media, whereby the legal levy for private copying is not included in the sale price, via other distribution channels like certain websites and auction sites, Auvibel has decided to strengthen its activities by instigating various legal actions.

On the basis of the sentences handed down, Auvibel can invoke various principles that can be applied to other, similar situations.

True, not all questions have been answered, but it must be clear to the public concerned that Auvibel is keeping its eye on the elaboration of a coherent jurisprudence on the matter. No-one can doubt that this jurisprudence will provide clarity to those involved regarding the possible risks. The penalties are, as demanded by the legislators, not inconsiderable.
