The Copyright Board of Canada certifies the tariffs to be paid by users of sound recordings in Canada. Re:Sound files tariffs for various types of users, including radio stations, pay audio services, satellite radio companies, gyms, nightclubs, restaurants, retail establishments, and hotels. The Copyright Board process includes open public hearings where Re:Sound and all interested parties have the opportunity to present their arguments before the Copyright Board. As each tariff is certified by the Copyright Board, Re:Sound begins to collect revenues from that user group and distributes revenues to artists and record labels. As set out in section 19 of the Copyright Act, all monies collected are split equally between artists and record labels.
