It stems from a Copyright Board decision in 2020 that awarded SOCAN clients $ 1.5 million covering 2008-12 for post-synchronization copies made on all digital and broadcast platforms . A post-synchronization copy refers to when a broadcaster uploads original video content containing copyright music to a digital content management system to make copies for internal use .
