Marriage, parades, conventions and karaoke just got more expensive. The Copyright Board of Canada approved new tariffs on playing music at these events.
An honour system will be set up to collect fees on behalf of musicians. So weddings, for example, will pay about 10 dollars for the right to play tunes to a crowd under 100. It jumps to 40 bucks if you invite over 500.
And if there’s any actual dancing? Well the fee doubles.
All this puts a wrinkle in Day 6 contributor Heather Cleland’s fantasy wedding budget.
