Consultation Paper on the Application of the Copyright Act's Compulsory Retransmission Licence to the Internet
From the Web site: "Section 31 of the Copyright Act provides a compulsory copyright licence, which permits the retransmission of the copyrighted works associated with over-the-air television and radio signals without the consent of affected rights holders, so long as specified conditions are met, including the payment of any applicable royalties contained in a tariff certified by the Copyright Board. Recent online developments have made it evident that the Internet can be used as a medium for the retransmission of over-the-air television signals, and have brought into question whether or not Internet-based retransmitters should have the benefit of the compulsory retransmission licence. The Departments of Canadian Heritage and Industry (the departments) are of the view that Internet-based retransmission raises significant issues of public policy, and are therefore seeking public input on the issues set out in this paper. This paper provides background to these issues, including an overview of arguments raised bot h for and against the compulsory copyright licensing of Internet-based retransmission. The paper also sets out certain preliminary views of the departments, along with a non-exhaustive set of options for a possible government response."
