Industry committee  Could you repeat the question? I'm sorry, but I did not understand it.

April 24th, 2018Committee meeting

Laurent Dubois

Industry committee  I cannot answer you right now because your question concerns technical considerations for which we have no answer.

April 24th, 2018Committee meeting

Laurent Dubois

Industry committee  The question should be put to the Association nationale des ├ęditeurs de livres. We are unable to provide you with specific figures from the publishing industry.

April 24th, 2018Committee meeting

Laurent Dubois

Industry committee  We would also very much like to have the figures because that would have a direct impact on how much our writers make, but the question should be put to publishers.

Laurent Dubois

Industry committee  I think they would accept to pay for them, but I have a feeling you don't agree with me. You are asking for my opinion, and I am giving it to you. Unfortunately, I don't have more specific arguments.

April 24th, 2018Committee meeting

Laurent Dubois

Industry committee  You raise a good point. It could in fact be assumed that, individually, revenue and income are being shared among more creators. That is possible. The fact remains that, in the issues we have been discussing since earlier, we are talking about the overall envelope. What we just

Laurent Dubois

Industry committee  We could say that, in a way, we agree with what we just heard in terms of sharing ideas to create content, to move ahead, to be a modern society. We agree on that, but when an idea is shared with someone and a decision is made jointly to carry out a project, both are in agreement

Laurent Dubois

Industry committee  Yes, Mr. Baylis. I don't know whether I will surprise you by saying that we may have some reservations regarding such a policy. If it was possible to guarantee a choice for the creator, that would be a potential option. We also don't want writers or the industry we represent to

April 24th, 2018Committee meeting

Laurent Dubois

Industry committee  Mr. Baylis, you have understood our two points perfectly. Thank you for the question you asked before that one. We have noted an increase in the use of content by educational institutions, but at the same time, since 2012, copyright collectives have lost $30 million in revenues.

April 24th, 2018Committee meeting

Laurent Dubois

Industry committee  I am talking about copyright collectives that pay royalties to writers.

April 24th, 2018Committee meeting

Laurent Dubois

Industry committee  Sorry, but I did not understand you very well.

April 24th, 2018Committee meeting

Laurent Dubois

Industry committee  Publishers and writers; in other words, the collectives that register licenses with Access Copyright or Copibec. Those license holders have lost $30 million in revenue, and that revenue represents the royalties paid out to publishers and writers. I think you will actually be hea

April 24th, 2018Committee meeting

Laurent Dubois

Industry committee  May I ask you to rephrase your question? I think I lost something in the interpretation.

April 24th, 2018Committee meeting

Laurent Dubois

Industry committee  If no changes were made and everything was resolved in court, it is clear to us that the profession of writer would become very difficult to exercise in our country. The risks related to that concern cultural diversity. Do we want all cultural products to come from abroad? Do we

April 24th, 2018Committee meeting

Laurent Dubois

Industry committee  Of course, we are very open to coming to the table to negotiate. I'm sure that the Collectives Access Copyright and Copibec, in Quebec, are just as willing to come to the table to open up discussions. For the time being, owing to the uncertainty in the law, the most likely actio
