Statements of Royalties to Be Collected for the Reprographic Reproduction, in Canada, of Works in Access Copyright’s Repertoire for the Years 2011 to 2014 and for the Years 2015 to 2017

Notice is hereby given that the Access Copyright Post-Secondary Educational Institution Tariff, 2011-2014 (the “First Tariff”) and the Access Copyright Post-Secondary Educational Institution Tariff, 2015-2017 (the “Second Tariff”), published in the Supplement of the Canada Gazette, Part I, Vol. 153, No. 49, on December 7, 2019, contain errors.

On December 6, 2019, the Copyright Board (the “Board”) rendered its decision with supporting reasons for the tariffs. Subsection 6(2) of the First Tariff read as follows:

(2) The interest payable by an educational institution shall be the amount in (1), less any federal or provincial taxes included therein, multiplied by the interest factors in the following table:

Academic Year

Interest Factor

2010-2011

1.1216

2011-2012

1.1092

2012-2013

1.0967

2013-2014

1.0842

2014-2015

1.0717

Given the structure of section 6 of the First Tariff, the interest factors as expressed above would lead the users to pay twice the amount of royalties due as a result of this tariff. This does not represent the intention of the Board as expressed in its reasons. Therefore, subsection 6(2) of the tariff is modified and reads as follows:

(2) The interest payable by an educational institution shall be the amount in (1), less any federal or provincial taxes included therein, multiplied by the interest factors in the following table:

Academic Year

Interest Factor

2010-2011

0.1216

2011-2012

0.1092

2012-2013

0.0967

2013-2014

0.0842

2014-2015

0.0717

Similarly, subsection 6(2) of the Second Tariff reads as follows:

(2) The interest payable by an educational institution shall be the amount in (1), less any federal or provincial taxes included therein, multiplied by the interest factors in the following table:

Academic Year

Interest Factor

2014-2015

1.0717

2015-2016

1.0610

2016-2017

1.0535

2017-2018

1.0457

For the same reasons, subsection 6(2) of the Second Tariff is modified and reads as follows:

(2) The interest payable by an educational institution shall be the amount in (1), less any federal or provincial taxes included therein, multiplied by the interest factors in the following table:

Academic Year

Interest Factor

2014-2015

0.0717

2015-2016

0.0610

2016-2017

0.0535

2017-2018

0.0457
