This independent administrative commission represents consumers who benefit from the right to copy, manufacturers, importers and distributors of devices that allow copying and the creators of copied cultural goods. It is chaired by a representative of the State, Jean Musitelli.
The principle of a specific rate scale adapted to refurbished devices was made by way of unanimous agreement.

Based on a usage study conducted by the GFK Institute on refurbished devices, the Commission adopted a 40% discount on multimedia phones and a 35% discount on multimedia tablets compared to the rates applicable to new devices with 15 votes in favor, 7 abstentions and no votes against.

Copie France welcomes this well-balanced and appropriate solution.

From now on, the new private copy levy will represent an average of 2% of the selling price of a refurbished smartphone.

These scales specific to refurbished devices guarantee the development of the refurbishing sector without - contrary to the exemption sought by some - sacrificing the interests of creators and impacting the many cultural activities funded by private copy levies.

Copie France stresses that the private copy exception represents a freedom for us all: giving us the right to copy for our own use television series, documentaries, art photos or music on our various devices. In return, the remuneration attached supports more than 200,000 artists, creators, publishers and producers each year and contributes to financing nearly 12,000 cultural projects all over France (performances, festivals, theaters, exhibitions, book fairs, artistic and cultural education projects, training sessions and more).

Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic which heavily impacted the cultural sector, private copy levies have helped more than 10,000 artists and creators in financial difficulty, by contributing to all of the emergency funds set up by collective management organizations.
