CRTC Maintains Distinction Between Traditional and New Media

| June 05, 2009

The CRTC released Broadcasting Regulatory Policy 2009-329, stating that content broadcast over new media such as the internet should remain exempt from the regulations it would be subject to were it broadcast under traditional means such as television. The CRTC has, however, taken steps to address undue preference and the role of ISPs as broadcasters and has called for a national digital strategy to address new media in the future.
