In a decision released earlier today, the Copyright Board granted Access Copyright interim relief in relation to its Post-Secondary Educational Institutions Reprographic Reproduction (2011-2013) tariff. The reasons for decision will be released later.
The purpose of the relief was to achieve the following main objectives:
– to provide certainty to targeted institutions by informing them now of what they may or may not do in using the repertoire of Access Copyright pursuant to the interim tariff starting January 1, 2011;
– to maintain the status quo to the extent possible.
