Canada’s government has launched a public consultation on proposed legislative and regulatory changes to the Board’s decision-making processes.

The Copyright Board of Canada establishes royalties for the use of copyrighted content in areas where this is entrusted to collective management organisations, such as music streaming, public performance, and TV retransmission.

Interested parties have until 29 September to provide feedback.

ICMP, together with our Canadian members CMPA and APEM, will be submitting our views to the request.

As well as the consultations, ministers announced the launch of open, transparent and merit-based selection processes to fill upcoming vacancies at the Copyright Board.
