Notes:
The notification by Canada to the WTO under Article 63.2 of TRIPS states:
'Statement Limiting the Right to Equitable Remuneration of Certain Rome Convention or WPPT
Countries.
The WIPO Copyright Treaty (WCT) and the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty (WPPT) provide authors, performers and producers of sound recordings with a full range of rights and protections so they can take advantage of the many opportunities presented by the digital world and the global marketplace. Ratification ensures that Canadian creators are paid when their copyrighted material is used in other countries that have also ratified the treaties, such as when their music is played over the radio or on digital music services.'

Section 9 of this Statement states that it enters into force on the later day on which it is published in Part II of the Canada Gazette or the day on which the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty (WPPT), adopted in Geneva on December 20, 1996, comes into force for Canada, which is on August 13, 2014.
