Doesn't that in theory require being a professional? Or does Canon not care as long as you have enough points?
"Canon Professional Services (CPS) provides exceptional support for full-time imaging professionals. CPS members receive exclusive 24/7 phone and e-mail support, expedited and discounted equipment maintenance and repairs, Equipment Evaluation Loans, on-site support at select events and shows, discounts on Canon Live Learning seminars and workshops, and more.
For Silver, Gold and Platinum levels, CPS assigns a point value to each item listed on the Qualified Product lists. Points are accrued when entered into your CPS account and are used to determine your qualification."
Cameras like 6D and 7DII only get you 5 points each, whereas 5DIII or 5DIV get you 7 points each. So two qualify you for Silver (fee free) but you need three for Gold ($100 fee)
