More On Mandatory Tariffs – the York U Conference Video & the York U Litigation

Here’s the video of the session on “Mandatory Tariffs” from the UNPACK SODRAC conference held at Osgoode on February 25, 2016.
The session starts at about the 21:30 mark. Ariel Katz speaks at about the 22 minute mark. I speak at about the 1:09:40 mark.

Mario Bouchard, Adriane Porcin and Bobby Glushko are in between.

Here are the slides from the participants:

Here is my most recent blog about all of this.

It is not without irony that this event took place at York University. Indeed, all eyes are now on York University to see if and how it will utilize the SCC’s ruling that Copyright Board tariffs are not de jure mandatory in its upcoming Federal Court trial where is it being sued by Access Copyright . This SCC ruling is set forth in about a dozen relevant paragraphs in the recent ruling from the Supreme Court of Canada in the CBC v. SODRAC case, quoted and further discussed here.  The three week long hearing is set to begin on May 16, 2016. This comes up, of course, in my talk.
