Lançou uma consulta pública a que a ANSOL participou.
De acordo com o comunicado da CE sobre a Iniciativa "Licenciar Europa", as recomendações apresentadas por Vitorino deverão ser tomadas em consideração no âmbito dessa iniciativa:
during 2012 the issue of private copying levies has been the subject of an industry mediation process, fostered by the Commission and led by former Commissioner António Vitorino. Mr. Vitorino is expected to deliver a report on this issue at the beginning of next year, including a number of recommendations. On this basis the Commission will draw conclusions as to appropriate follow-up actions for the specific recommendations, including the further involvement of stakeholders to contribute to the finding of future-proof and internal market friendly solutions.
Segundo o site dos press releases da Comissão Europeia...
In November 2011, António Vitorino, former Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister of Portugal as well as a former European Commissioner responsible for Justice and Home Affairs, was appointed to head a mediation process on private copying and reprography levies. This mediation was announced in the Commission's May 2011 Communication on A Single Market for Intellectual Property Rights (see IP/11/630).
Mr Vitorino was asked to identify the best manner to achieve coherence, effectiveness and legitimacy in the implementation and application of the principles and legal framework underpinning private copying and reprography levies.
The recommendations will be presented by Mr Vitorino to Internal Market Commissioner Michel Barnier. A press event will be held in the VIP Corner of the Berlaymont at 11.30.
Press release will be available on the day.
