This book provides an annotated guide to Canadian copyright tariffs relating to the use of music, the reproduction of literary works, media monitoring, levies on blank tapes, and the retransmission of distant radio and television signals, as of January 1, 2016. The handbook also includes an introductory note on the mandate of the Copyright Board of Canada, detailed notes on judicial review of the Board’s decisions, a list of all collective societies operating in Canada, a table of royalties collected under the certified tariffs, and an update on all tariff applications that are currently before the Copyright Board.
