*Due to the pandemic, the Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) will delay issuing webcasting rates for the 2021-2025 period until Spring 2021. Licensees operating under the Commercial Webcasters (CW-CRB) or Noncommercial Webcasters (NCW-CRB) rates and terms will use the 2020 rates for minimum fees and monthly royalty obligations until new rates are announced. Any adjustments to rates will apply retroactively to all streaming activity as of January 1, 2021. In the event of an increase to rates, licensees will be responsible for paying any additional royalties owed by the deadline set forth in the 2021-2025 rate determination.
