Video of CBC v SODRAC oral arguments in Supreme Court of Canada now Available

The video of the oral arguments in the recent Supreme Court of Canada hearing in CBC v. SODRAC is now finally available here

My submission re the "mandatory tariff" theory on behalf of the McGill Centre for Intellectual Property Policy and Ariel Katz starts at at ~ the 152.00 mark.

Here are the factums.

I'm not sure why this was not webcast live on March 16, 2015 when it was heard.  Apparently, some underlying material was designated as "confidential" by the Copyright Board, which happens all too frequently in Board cases - notwithstanding the fundamental principle of open courts in Canada. In any event, we now have the video.
