Copyright board grants application for consolidation of tariffs

Briefs | 02/27/2008 10:49 pm EST

The Copyright of Canada last week announced that it has granted the Canadian Association of Broadcasters‘ application to consolidate the proceedings dealing with SOCAN and NRCC tariffs 1.A (2008), the CSI commercial radio tariff and the AVLA/SOPROQ tariff for the Reproduction of Sound Recordings by Commercial Radio Stations (2008-2011). The CAB applied last September to consolidate the proceeding dealing with the tariffs, but the board ruled at that time the application was premature. With the re-determination of SOCAN-NRCC Tariff 1.A for 2003-2007 now complete, the board granted consolidation, citing that a consolidated proceeding will ensure that all the relevant issues are considered at once, among other rationale. The CAB and the collectives now have until March 10 to file a proposed timetable with the board for a hearing that is to begin no later than December 2.
