That this House notes that the Copyright and Rights in Performances (Personal Copies for Private Use) Regulations 2014 were laid before Parliament on 27 March 2014; further notes that this measure will mean that consumers can legally copy copyright material which they have lawfully acquired for their own private and personal use; observes that the Culture, Media and Sport Committee has stated that it is not convinced that a facility for private copying is factored into the purchase either of music or devices that store, play or copy it (Third Report, Supporting the creative economy, HC674, para 73); believes that the Government has not specified, as it is obliged to by international law, how musicians, composers, performers and creators will be fairly compensated under this proposal; is concerned that the accompanying impact assessment clearly states that the proposal will represent a transfer of value from rights-holders to the technology industry; acknowledges the economic power and cultural impact of the creative industries; and calls on the Government to withdraw these draft regulations and re-lay them in amended form to ensure that the creative content-producing sector does not suffer harm.
