SOCAN TARIFF 5.B – EXHIBITIONS AND FAIRS (2018-2021)
All amounts payable under this tariff are exclusive of any federal, provincial or other governmental taxes or levies of any kind.
As used in this tariff, the terms “licence,” “licence to perform” and “licence to communicate to the public by telecommunication” mean a licence to perform in public or to communicate to the public by telecommunication or to authorize the performance in public or the communication to the public by telecommunication, including the right to make works available to the public by telecommunication in a way that allows a member of the public to have access to them from a place and at a time individually chosen by that member of the public.
Except where otherwise specified, fees payable for any licence granted by SOCAN shall be due and payable upon grant of the licence. Any amount not received by the due date shall bear interest from that date until the date the amount is received. Interest shall be calculated daily, at a rate equal to one per cent above the Bank Rate effective on the last day of the previous month (as published by the Bank of Canada). Interest shall not compound.
Each licence shall subsist according to the terms set out therein. SOCAN shall have the right at any time to terminate a licence for breach of terms or conditions upon 30 days’ notice in writing.
Tariff of royalties to be collected by the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada (SOCAN) in compensation for the right to perform in public or to communicate to the public by telecommunication, in Canada, musical or dramatico-musical works forming part of its repertoire including the right to make such works available to the public by telecommunication in a way that allows a member of the public to have access to them from a place and at a time individually chosen by that member of the public.
Where an admission charge is made for attendance at musical concerts during an exhibition or fair, in addition to any charge that may apply for entrance to the exhibition or fair itself, an additional licence shall be required. The fee payable for such licence for the years 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021 is calculated at the rate of 3 per cent of gross receipts from ticket sales to the concert, exclusive of any applicable taxes. Where the concert ticket allows the purchaser access to the exhibition grounds at any time after the opening on the day of the concert, the adult general grounds admission price shall be deducted from the ticket price to produce the net ticket price.
The fees due under section B above shall be calculated on a per concert basis and shall be payable immediately after the close of the exhibition.
SOCAN shall have the right to audit the licensee’s books and records, on reasonable notice and during normal business hours, to verify the statements rendered and the fee payable by the licensee.
