OTTAWA - The Supreme Court of Canada has reined in the application of copyright fees levied on music, video games and printed materials that Canadians use in different ways.
The top court examined five different cases at once that touched on tariffs set by the Copyright Board.
In one of the biggest cases, pitting ministers of education and school boards across the country against a body that collects royalty fees for publishers, the court sided with the educators.
It found that the Copyright Board had incorrectly zeroed in on teachers who photocopied materials for their students rather than the students who were using them.
The use of the works by students for study does not infringe the Copyright Act.
The court sent the case back to the Copyright Board, but the ruling is likely to have a major financial impact on educational institutions of all levels across the country that pay millions a year for the right to photocopy.
