MODEL OF RRO OPERATION
Type of National legislation :
Civil law: Yes
Common law: No
Other Law: Dutch Copyright Law permits the making of photocopies for private use, providing this is limited to small sections of books, or short articles from daily newspapers or magazines. Photocopies made for private use may only be used by the person copying them and may not be issued to others. Educational institutions, libraries, government agencies and other institutions working in the public interest may issue photocopies for internal use to students, mutual lending between libraries and to civil servants respectively – providing fair compensation is paid to SR for these copies. The reproduction right fee, set in 1974 and still effective today, is € 0.045 per copy. Only non-scientific educational institutions pay € 0.011 per copy per page. The Act of 28 March 2002 for the amendment of the Dutch Copyright Act of 1912 with regards to reprographic reproduction was published in Dutch State Book 186. After a legislation process lasting years, the effect of reproduction rights has been extended to the Dutch business sector. This law has been implemented in February 2003.
