"The Re:Sound webinar was an excellent introduction to a difficult topic. Kudos, to the CAPACOA team for the results of their negotiations."

Arts in Perspective

Not quite webinars, not quite panel discussions, not quite consultations either, the Arts in Perspective conversations borrow from these different forms of gatherings to create unique knowledge sharing hangouts.



Since 2010, CAPACOA has had ongoing dialogue with Re:Sound regarding neighbouring rights for the use of recorded music. We work constructively with Re:Sound to define simple tariffs that offer fair compensation to right holders and that take into account the realities of performing arts oganizations.


CAPACOA-Re:Sound Agreement

CAPACOA and Re:Sound have come to a settlement agreement in December 2014 for the payment of neighbouring rights royalties by CAPACOA members and members of affiliate networks. This agreement was extended in December 2015. The terms of the settlement agreement have been communicated to members in a series of webinars (see below).
