Submission to the Consultation on Options for Reform to the Copyright Board of Canada

ACP is a member of Access Copyright, the Canadian Copyright Licensing Agency. Access Copyright counts independent Canadian publishers among its affiliates, and licenses the copying of their work to educational and other institutions. Though independent publishers do not have a direct relationship with the Copyright Board of Canada, through our affiliation with Access Copyright the operations of and decisions made by the Board have a direct impact on our businesses. The Board continues to play an important role in balancing the needs of content creators and producers with those of consumers, and we appreciate the opportunity to provide input as options for the Board’s reform are considered.
