Canadian Musician's are given STREAMING Rates for their music creations of
$.0011 from Spotify, YouTube and the internet.
In 2003, the Superior Court agreed to alter the definition of "STREAMING" to exclude "Broadcast and Transmission". This gave the Corporations of Bell, Rogers, Cogeco and opportunity to charge 2/3's of Canadians $120.00 per month.
*DID YOU KNOW..It takes over 550,000 Streams to make $100.00 on Spotify, youTube, and social media for a Canadian Musician?
Do You Think This is FAIR???.
These corporations make BILLIONS of dollars in STREAMING our Music Creations, and the Canadian Revenue Agency is first in line with it's hands out for the TAXATION associated with the success of Broadcasting our Music.
The minister of Science and Technology - Naveed Bains and the Minister of Canadian Heritage - Melanie Joly, promised to listen to Canadian Musicians until Sept. 29th 2017.
