Webcasting Rates and Terms to Improve for Educational Student Stations Under Settlement

The Copyright Royalty Board (“CRB”) has published CBI negotiated settlement with SoundExchange (“SX”) as the rules pertaining to certain educational stations which are substantially staffed by students. The CRB publication of agreement signals acceptance of agreement with minor technical changes.

CBI sees this as a big win for many student stations webcasting sound recordings. “The adoption of this settlement not only rolls forward the current rates for these stations for another five years, but also enlarges the number of stations which can report the use of sound recordings via a proxy fee, while allowing these services to the public to provide reports of use of sound recordings. This is a big win for student stations, the labels and artists” said Gregory Weston, President of CBI.  The latter two were represented by SX in the negotiation process.
