A German court has ordered PC maker Fujitsu Siemens to pay a royalty of
12 for every PC it sells in Germany. A Munich district court believes
that as with blank media such as audio and video cassettes, the levy
should compensate rights holders for lost royalties.

The suit was first brought in 2001 by VG Wort rights society, a
copyright management organisation. It argued that Fujitsu Siemens hardware
can be used for copying - and therefore infringes the rights of its members.
Fujitsu Siemens is the first company targeted by the society. More PC
vendors may follow later this year.
