Decision of the Canadian Federal Court of Appeal’s judicial review of the Copyright Board’s K-12 tariff 

The Canadian Federal Court of Appeal released its decision regarding the judicial review of the Copyright Board’s K-12 tariff. 

In a communication issued by Access Copyright, the RRO expressed their disappointment about the Court of Appeal’s decision on the judicial review of the elementary and secondary schools tariff certified by the Copyright Board for the period 2010-2015. The Court of Appeal declined to disturb the Board’s findings with respect to fair dealing, which resulted in the Board excluding 87% of copying from books in its tariff valuation.
