We use Optical Character Recognition (OCR) during our scanning and processing workflow to make the content of each page searchable. You can view the automatically generated text below as well as copy and paste individual pieces of text to quote in your own work.

Text recognition is never 100% accurate. Many parts of the scanned page may not be reflected in the OCR text output, including: images, page layout, certain fonts or handwriting.

We'te lookin’ good! Performing Rights Organization of Canada Limited, formerly BMI Canada Limited, is this country’s largest performing rights organization. We have affiliated with us more than 9,300 writers, composers and music publishers. It is our job to license and collect performance royalties from the ‘‘users”’ of music — such as film theatres, arenas, clubs, broadcasters, concert halls. These royalties are then distributed to the people who create music: the writers, composers and publishers. Through international agreements we also license in Canada music from outside our borders. Take last year, for example. Variety has issued its list of ‘‘Big Rental Films of 1977’. This reflects the films’ U.S. and Canadian rentals accruing to the distributors. Of the top 13 on the list, we mention 11 here: Star Wars Close Encounters of the Rocky Third Kind Smokey and the Bandit In Search of Noah’s Ark A Star Is Born The Spy Who Loved Me King Kong Oh, God The Deep A Bridge Too Far Recognize any titles? We do! We license in Canada all or some of the music in each one.
