Canada Deprived of Convenient Services Like Pandora

Many Canadians ask a question why innovative music services can’t exist in their country. The answer might be a whole story of the relationships of the country with Pandora.


Pandora is actually an innovative a music service developed five years ago, launched as a service helping music fans find more music within the type of music they like. Moreover, it was the new way people didn’t have to rely on peer-to-peer when they wanted to sample the type of music they never heard of.

Soon after the start of the service the largest record labels became involved, revealing both good and bad news for the music fans. The good one was that the industry had a clear policy related to innovation in entertainment, helping it move further in time and earn more revenue. However, the bad news was that the policy consisted in banning and blocking innovation without discussion. By 2007, this attitude caused the crack down on the new service, when entertainment industry applied local American legislation to demand the company block all users residing outside of the country.

This led to revert of the people from Pandora to the ways of music acquisition they used before its advent, like P2P. 2007 showed clearly that record labels that demanded high royalty rates were deal breakers anywhere outside of the United States.

3 years passed, but Pandora is still not in Canada, the service keeping blocking potential Canadian interest. The only reason for it that the country’s record labels are requiring radio delivered through mobile phones via the web to pay 20 times the amount of royalty that radio delivered over AM/FM currently pays.

In fact, Canadian record labels block the innovative services from entering the country because of the copyright legislation being not what labels want it to be. Meanwhile, Canadian artists are hoping to be heard and become famous via such services, but they seem to be out of luck in their attempt to achieve the global audience. For those performers trying to promote themselves, services like Pandora are no longer an appropriate method to do so due to record labels’ determinations. Still, it’s quite a weird point of view – to block an innovative services but allow P2P, including all the major networks around the world. The only consolation for the Canadians is that they at least can listen to alternative services that do not benefit the largest record labels as well.
