Private copying
The copyright law (633/1941) grants artists, performers or executors the right to receive a remuneration for the private reproduction of videograms made by single subjects for personal use exclusively (so called private copying).
The law has been introduced to allow an individual, who has legally acquired a blank audiovisual support on which he has recorded an audiovisual work, to view it with different devices and in different ways, provided that this copy is made strictly for personal use, devoid of any commercial intention (e.g. copying on a virgin DVD a movie broadcast on tv).
For this reason, in consideration of the growing spread of new means and devices able to record and copy audiovisual work, the law grants authors, editors, producers of audiovisual work as well as artists, performers and executors the right to receive a remuneration.

SIAE is the Company entitled to collect the remuneration for private copying due to all rightholders (authors and editors, original producers of audiovisual works, artists) who manufacture or import recording devices and blank media within the Italian territory .
The types of devices and media supports as well as the tariffs of private copying applied to such devices and supports are set by (legislative) decree.

The remunerations for video, private copying are distributed among rightholders according to the following percentage:

Distribution of remuneration for video private copying 30% to authors and editors70% in equal amounts  as follows:23,33% to original video producers

23,33% to home Video producers

23,33% to artists, performers and executors

NUOVOIMAIE collects from SIAE a 23.33 % quota of video private copy and then distributes such quota to its members.
