2. In this tariff,

“gross income” means the gross amounts paid by any person for the use of one or more broadcasting services or facilities provided by a station’s operator, excluding the following:

  • (a) income accruing from investments, rents or any other business unrelated to the station’s broadcasting activities. However, income accruing from any allied or subsidiary business that is a necessary adjunct to the station’s broadcasting services and facilities or which results in their being used, including the gross amounts received by a station pursuant to turn-key contracts with advertisers, shall be included in the “gross-income”;
  • (b) amounts received for the production of a program that is commissioned by someone other than the station and which becomes the property of that person;
  • (c) the recovery of any amount paid to obtain the exclusive national or provincial broadcast rights to a sporting event, if the station can establish that the station was also paid normal fees for station time and facilities; and
  • (d) amounts received by an originating station acting on behalf of a group of stations, which do not constitute a permanent network and which broadcast a single event, simultaneously or on a delayed basis, that the originating station subsequently pays out to the other stations participating in the broadcast. These amounts paid to each participating station are part of that station’s “gross income”.

In the case of CSI, this definition is understood to include any income from simulcast; (« revenus bruts »)
