Restaurants Canada, working closely with the Hotel Association of Canada, has defeated Re:Sound’s attempts to increase the minimum annual fee they charge for live music in venues. Re:Sound, a music licensing company, had proposed an annual fee of $50. We held them to the existing $37.64 annual fee.

We are now negotiating with Re:Sound and SOCAN on other tariffs. Stay tuned for updates.
