We're very aware of the ongoing litigation and the issue of educational copying and fair dealing. This reform and modernization of the board maintains the existing statutory damage model. However, Minister Rodriguez and Minister Bains have written to the Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology, and the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage asking them specifically to look at the applicability of a tariff, the obligation to pay a tariff and the statutory damages associated with non-payment of a tariff, recognizing that this is very substantive and significant issue of effect to creators and that it's one that requires a more considered approach than the modernization efforts that we're pursuing here today.
