Copyright Board Begins to Life After Supreme Court Rulings

Barry Sookman reports that the Copyright Board of Canada has issued an order to parties in the satellite radio services case to address the implications of the recent Supreme Court of Canada copyright decisions. It notes that “given the reasons of the majority in Alberta (Education) v. Canadian Copyright Licensing Agency (Access Copyright), 2012 SCC 37, the Board’s analysis of fair dealing in the satellite radio services market may need to be reviewed.”

    Why do I think this reports sounds like: “It’s the end of the world!!! iTunes won’t need to pay us for the content consumers buy on their system!!!!”

    The Board actually made three orders on Friday. I updated my blog to refer to each of them
