CASL, Governments & Crown Corporations

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) released a new question and answer today as part of its Frequently Asked Questions.  The Frequently Asked Questions are available at http://www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/com500/faq500.htm.

Question:  Does CASL apply to federal, provincial, territorial and municipal governments?

Answer:  CASL does not apply to the activities of the federal, provincial and territorial governments. CASL does apply, however, to crown corporations, including municipal governments, when the corporation is acting in the course of any commercial activity.
