In its 2008-2008 private copying tariff application, the Canadian Private Copying Collective asks for a levy on digital audio recording devices such as MP3 players to be reinstated. The CPCC collected nearly $4 million under such a levy until December 2004, when the Federal Court of Appeal overturned the Copyright Board of Canada’s tariff decision. However, in its 2008-2009 Proposed Tariff Backgrounder – excerpts from which appear below – the CPCC maintains that the appeals court left the door open for its latest tariff application.
