December 14, 2015 – CAPACOA and Re:Sound have agreed to a one-year extension of their Settlement Agreement on the use of recorded music.

Pursuant to this agreement, Re:Sound filed the setllement tariffs with the Copyright Board for certification for 2016-2020. However, considering how long it currently takes for the Copyright Board to certify tariffs, it is unlikely that the tariffs will be certified anytime soon. Hence, Re:Sound and CAPACOA have agreed to a one year-extension of the Settlement Agreement signed in December 2014. This agreement provides affordable tariffs and a simplified reporting form for CAPACOA members and members of affiliate networks.

As a reminder, royalties for the 2015 calendar year are due January 31, 2016.

Re:Sound licences neighbouring rights for the public use of recorded music. For more information, we invite you to consult our Re:Sound pages and to register for the following webinars. 


Free Webinar on Neighbouring Rights Made Easy

CAPACOA will be presenting a free webinar on neighbouring rights. It will show you how the CAPACOA-Re:Sound agreement makes it so easy to licence for the use of published sound recordings. It will present the Settlement Tariffs in the agreement, will explain how they apply to performing arts presenting organizations, and will explain the remittance process.

This webinar will be useful for new members or for organizations who would like a refresh before submitting their report for the 2015 calendar year. The webinar is offered on three different dates and each one is a repeat.
