Acting Secretary GeneralCopyright Board of Canada56 Sparks street, Suite 800Ottawa, OntarioK1A 0C9Dear Mr. McDougall,
Re: Access Copyright Post-Secondary Educational Institution Tariff, 2011-2013Interim Tariff Applications
Further to the Board’s directions of 26 November, 2010, as amended by further directionsdated 3 December, 2010, we provide the response of the objectors the Canadian Association ofUniversity Teachers (“CAUT”) and the Canadian Federation of Students (“CFS”) to theapplication by the Access Copyright for an “interim decision on the Tariff” filed with theBoard on 13 October, 2010, notice of which was received by CAUT and CFS on 26 November,2010 (via a communication from the Board, not from Access Copyright), and amended thisweek with the December 5, 2010, correspondence of Access Copyright.The complexity of the opening paragraph of this letter provides the Board with all it requiresto dismiss Access Copyright’s application.
CAUT and CFS have already provided the Board with comments on the interim tariff,information about which it obtained from Access Copyright’s website. Thesesubmissions supplement those comments.Our submissions address two concerns:1.
considerations of procedural fairness; and2.
whether or not Access Copyright has met its burden to show that an interimtariff is warranted in the circumstances.
