CRIA iPod Levy Update

Source: http://www.michaelgeist.ca/content/view/2334/125/

“The Federal Court of Appeal on Friday granted CRIA’s request to intervene in the private copying/iPod levy judicial review, a case that openly reveals the divisions between CRIA and the Canadian Private Copying Collective (CRIA is on the board of CPCC but the CPCC objected to its intervention request). ”

“CRIA was therefore added to the case and given permission to file a 15 page memo and spend 20 minutes of argument on issues surrounding the digital audio recorders and whether they qualify as a medium for the purposes of the Copyright Act. Its claims about private copying and the legality of peer-to-peer downloading will have to wait for another day.”
