Copyright and IPR links
Unauthorized "boot-legging" of music and software costs legitimate artists and content owners billions of dollars a year.
Canada Disc & Tape requires proof of licensing for all orders. We participate in the International Recording Media Association's (IRMA) Anti-Piracy Compliance Program. This program allows us to be in complete compliance with applicable copyright law protecting the rights of legitimate intellectual property rights holders.
Each order requires a completed and signed Replication Rights Form and any necessary additional documentation as defined on the IPR form.
Licensing from other parties can be illustrated by using the Grantor of Rights Letter template (PDF or Word Document).
