From JVA (Japan Video Software Association) website
On the 21st, the Japan Video Software Association (JVA) announced that it will support the draft government ordinance of the Agency for Cultural Affairs, which designates BD recorders as new target devices for the private recording compensation system, “in the sense of returning compensation to copyright holders. ” and announced that it had submitted an opinion.
Opinion solicitation begins for BD recorders to be subject to private recording compensation system
The written opinion states that JVA is an organization whose members are video software makers, etc., and that JVA members’ video package software uses technical protection measures that prevent copying, and that private video package software is used as a recording source. Explain that you are not requesting recording compensation.
On top of that, “However, members of this association should be compensated for their private digital recording of the broadcast when a movie copyrighted work for which they have the right to reproduce is broadcast.” , stated the reasons for supporting the draft ordinance.
In addition, the thoughts on “dubbing 10” provided for the current broadcast recording are also described. “Broadcasting uses a copyright protection technology called ‘dubbing 10’, but even for private recordings that are performed within the limit of the number of times, copies that are comparable to the original are created digitally. It is an act to do so, and should be subject to compensation.”
“‘Dubbing 10’ is based on the idea that ‘we should be aware of the fact that the lifestyle of enjoying content is changing and diversifying with the advent of portable devices that store video and music, as well as mobile terminals, as technology advances. We set an upper limit for the number of copies in consideration of the opinions such as ‘, and we do not think that compensation is not necessary just because the number of copies is within that range. He expressed his view that the existence of the company does not constitute a reason for not requiring compensation.
