Copie France

Private copy levy is the primary source of private funding for culture in France. It is vital to those who create the books, music, films, series or art photos that we store and consume on our personal digital devices. Copie France is the non-profit operator that collects and distributes this remuneration.

Copie France is a private society that does not generate savings or profits. It is an umbrella organisation managed by its members, which are exclusively collective management organisations of authors’ rights and neighbouring rights. Originally created in 1985 to manage audiovisual private copying, Copie France merged in 2011 with its sister society Sorecop to become the only organisation managing the levy for audiovisual private copying applicable in France for all the repertoires concerned (audiovisual, sound, visual arts, writing).

Our missions

Copie France's three missions are to:
  • collect remuneration from manufacturers and importers of storage media and devices (smartphones, tablets, flash drives, etc.)
  • redistribute the remuneration to the collective management organisations (authors, artists and producers of cinema, audiovisual, music, visual and written arts)
  • represent the rights holders before the Private Copying Commission
