The Copyright Board of Canada has issued an interim Private Copying Tariff for 2012-2013. The interim tariff allows the Canadian Private Copying Collective, (CPCC) to continue to collect private copying levies on recordable CDs at the current rate of 29 cents until the Copyright Board certifies a final tariff. The CPCC has not requested an increase in the levy rate for 2012-2013.

"The private copying levy is an important source of revenue for music rights holders and the interim tariff ensures that they continue to receive this compensation until the Copyright Board certifies the final tariff for 2012-2013," said Lyette Bouchard, Chair of the CPCC. The Copyright Board will hear arguments for the Private Copying Tariff, 2012-2013 beginning on October 9, 2012.

The CPCC has also filed an application with the Copyright Board for a private copying levy to be applied to microSD memory cards in 2012 and 2013. Research shows that as with the previous shift from cassette tapes to CD-Rs, technology is changing and Canadians are now using microSD memory cards to copy music.

Once the Copyright Board has certified a tariff on microSD memory cards, it will be effective from January 1, 2012 for all microSD memory cards sold in Canada by manufacturers and importers.

The interim tariff and proposed tariff for 2012-2013 can be found on the Copyright Board's website: http://www.cb-cda.gc.ca.

Established in 1999, the CPCC is an umbrella organization whose member collectives represent songwriters, composers, music publishers, recording artists, musicians and record companies. The CPCC is the non-profit organization responsible for collecting and distributing private copying levies.
