Apple has been ordered to pay 12 million euros to Copie France for iPads sold from March to December 2012, according to a report. While Apple collected fees from iPad consumers to be paid as renumeration for private copying, the money was apparently never actually paid to Copie France as required. French law requires payment for a number of devices and materials that can keep private copies of licensed material. Apple was ordered to pay 5 million euros in May for the same reason, and its total renumeration due has been estimated at 30 million euros. [via PC INpact]
