Canadian Private Copying Collective Sees No Levy On Cloud-based Music Services


The Canadian Private Copying Collective (CPCC) today clarified that it will not seek to obtain levies for private copies of music made with cloud storage services.

With Apple, Google and Amazon now offering consumers in the United States "cloud based" storage and retrieval of music files, much is being written in Canadian publications and blogs about the prospects of similar services being offered in Canada and related potential issues.

Several articles and postings have speculated about what the CPCC?s view might be on these matters, and specifically whether the organization would view this type of music storage and retrieval as appropriate for a tariff under the private copying levy provision in the Copyright Act.

In response to these concerns, the CPCC clarified that "it collects levies on blank audio recording media used by individuals to make copies of music for their personal use. Providers of cloud music services offer remote storage of and access to music files."

The CPCC sees services such as Apple's iMatch "as a matter of licensing between the rights holders and the cloud service providers, and not one of private copying."

"It is not our position that cloud-based music distribution systems should be subject to a private copying levy under the Copyright Act, and the CPCC will not seek to obtain levies for private copies of music made with cloud storage services," the Canadian organization added.
