PPCA copyright case back in court this week

Commercial Radio Australia’s case against the PPCA over capped copyright fees returns to the Copyright Tribunal this Monday.

Arguments for both sides are expected to continue for at least a week, after which the tribunal will deliberate on the issue.

The ongoing case concerns simulcasting of live free to air radio programs.

The PPCA is seeking an additional fee for online simulcasting. CRA, on behalf of the radio industry, is opposing that, because fees have already been paid for those broadcasts.

Economic experts are likely to be called in this round of hearings.

For a review of the arguments on both sides of the case, see our earlier report.
