moved for leave to introduce Bill C-506, an act to amend the Copyright Act.
Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank the hon. member for Kitchener Centre for seconding this bill.
This bill amends the Copyright Act in order to give programming undertakings more time to destroy ephemeral recordings of a work. It also requires broadcasting undertakings to destroy reproductions of an ephemeral recording as soon as they no longer possess the sound recording or the performance or work fixed by means of a sound recording.
Repealing subsections 30.8(8) and 30.9(6) will allow programming and broadcasting undertakings to benefit from the application of sections 30.8 and 30.9 even if a licence to copy the work is available from a collective society.
(Motions deemed adopted, bill read the first time and printed)
