Canadian Copyright Reform

Last week’s Throne Speech made it clear that copyright reform is on the Canadian government’s legislative agenda.  Given the political landscape in Canada at the moment, many speculate [stories here and here] that the Conservative government may be preparing the way for US-style copyright laws to introduce digital-rights management protection and anti-circumvention provisions. In our earlier post,  we noted that the issue was already on the radar in the spring session, and now that Parliament is back to work, we can expect copyright law to come back into the spotlight.  We hope that the Canadian legislators will learn from US missteps in this area and achieve a balanced approach to copyright law in Canada.  We will continue to monitor this issue.
