The additional remunerations were distributed to the TV programmes/authors that received remunerations from Kopiosto for private copying and educational recordings during those years. The remunerations that were now distributed are equivalent to around 5–10% of the remunerations originally received by these programmes/authors.
The compensation for private copying is remuneration for authors and performers for consumers recording TV programmes for their own use. The remunerations for educational recordings accumulate through the licences sold by Kopiosto that allow schools to record Finnish and foreign programmes broadcast by Yle and MTV.
