"When the Chinese reach the point where they have a lot invested in intellectual property, you're going to find them getting very interested in copyright."

Catharine represents publishers and their interests on the FACTOR National Advisory Board, the music section of the Cultural Human Resources Council, and the Music Café Committee for the Toronto International Film Festival. Prior to that, she was the executive director of the Radio Starmaker Fund, where, as part of the overall responsibility for the day to day management of the fund, she guided the expansion of the fund to include international touring and marketing programmes, and prepared policy recommendations for the Board of Directors.
