Canadian Broadcasting Considers Selling All Of Its Properties

Canadian Broadcasting Corp. (CBC) is open to selling any and all of its real estate as it plans to move away from owning bricks and mortar, while its main union argues the public broadcaster is in danger of making "irreversible" cuts under financial duress. Fred Mattocks, the CBC's general manager of media operations and technology, told staff at a town hall on September 22, 2015, "If you are in a CBC-owned building, you can be sure that we're looking at selling it and leasing back space, or selling it and moving." That includes CBC-owned buildings in Vancouver, Calgary, Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto and Montreal, Mattocks said. "The guiding principle here is that we would prefer not to be in real estate, carrying the real estate risk and the costs associated to that," said Marc Y. Lapierre, the CBC's executive director of real estate services. "We're going case by case," he said. "It's not a dogmatic approach." The CBC has excess space it pays to maintain, some of it built in a different technological era, which diverts money from more pressing needs, including programming, Lapierre said.

Lawsuit Alleges Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Uses YouTube Video Without Permission

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is facing a lawsuit in the United States over the alleged use of a YouTube video without the owner's permission. In the suit filed August 11 to the Western District court of New York state, Alfonzo Cutaia of Buffalo, N.Y., alleges that the CBC violated U.S. copyright law by using a video of a winter storm he filmed and uploaded to YouTube last year without his permission. CNN is also named in the suit which claims CBC obtained the video - called Buffalo Lake Effect - from that organization.
