So where does that copyright levy go?

One of the questions about the levy placed on blank media is where does it go? In 2006, the proceeds of the levy were finally distributed amongst the allocated participants. In this case, it means over $60 million was divvied up amongst the following 65,000 eligible participants (breakdown from Neil Eton's website):

  • Authors - 66.0%
  • Performers - 18.9%
  • Makers - 15.1%

And I love the weasel word "small" in describing the levy in the CPCC announcement.

"Ready, Aye, Ready" was a slogan used by Canadian politicians to indicate Canada's willingness to assist the British Empire in any conflict. It remains in use as a motto for some of the Canadian military. It has almost nothing to do with the content of this blog.
