A full summary of this case has been published on Kluwer IP Law.

The Estonian Authors’ Society (EAÜ) is a collecting society that administers authors’ economic rights in Estonia. The EAÜ sued a music concert organiser who had not acquired a corresponding licence for public performance of copyright works and had not paid a licence fee to the EAÜ. It is interesting to note that in this case the court awarded damages in an amount equal to double the licence fee that would ordinarily be payable for the public performance of the copyright works.
