Philips Reducing CD Rewritable Royalty Fees
Philips announced several days ago they will reduce the royalty rate for those in compliance for the CD Rewritable disc licensing fee. The decrease is nearly half at 44%. The old fee was 0.045 per disc and with a drop of USD 0.02 the new rate will be 0.025.
The move is in a continued effort of Philips trying to bring manufacturers up-to-date with compliance standings. The reduction shall be available to all licensees who are in full compliance with the terms and conditions of their license agreement with Philips. The reduction shall initially be valid from the 4th quarter of 2007.
MF Digital duplication equipment fully supports burning to rewritable media.
