Blame the Public

An op-ed in the Globe by Brianna Goldberg notes that CRIA’s response to the high licencing fees keeping online music services out of Canada has been to blame the public.


  1. This is one of the best articles I have read in quite a while. It is from someone who actually works (or has previously) in the media industry and has had the ear of artists. It talks about the kinds of services and relationships that artists desire, and they are not the ones being offered by the CRIA. Mr. Henderson would do well do read this article, if he could prevent his eyeballs catching fire in the process.

    I dislike that the article makes it sound like CRIA, SOCAN and Re:Sound are some sort of regulators keeping new music services from entering the country. Are Canadian regulators even playing a part in this issue?
