From Issue:

The Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) has decided it's not competitively unfair to private operators for the publicly-funded CBC to have launched the CBC Music portal.

In February (RAIN coverage here), Canada's national broadcaster launched the CBC Music service, with CBC FM streams, 40 Internet-only radio streams, on-demand music, and other audio content. Since then, private broadcasters like Stingray Digital (which operates cable television music service Galaxie and Stingray-music.com) have argued public funding and supposed preferential royalty rates gave CBC an unfair advantage in the field (see more in our coverage here).

The CRTC ruled, "SDG has not demonstrated that the CBC has given anyone, including itself, a preference, or that it has subjected anyone to a disadvantage." Read more from CBC here.
