PIAC recently commented on the consultation on fair revenue sharing between digital platforms and news media. We expressed several concerns regarding the Australian remuneration model for news media, which is one of the options primarily being considered for Canada. We noted several issues with this regime, such as lack of public transparency, how it may particularly hurt smaller news media outlets, and affect key policy issues such as freedom of press and speech. The other regime discussed in the consultation paper is the mandatory financial contributions regime, which would work in a similar way as the regime for contributions to Canadian content. We argued that this will be a better option than the Australian model as it would allow for equitable access to funds, which would be administered through an independent fund. Our position is that it would be best to wait and see how these models pan out in other countries, review any issues that arise and see what lessons could be applied, before implementing a regime here.
