Canadian Copyright Update


The Federal Tories have made it clear that they intend to re-introduce their copyright reform bill (the bill formerly known as Bill C-32) this fall, with new legislation possible by Christmas. They may want to re-think that timeline and ask Santa to wait on the shiny new copyright law. The Supreme Court of Canada is scheduled to weigh in on the subject, with a record five copyright cases scheduled in early December. While the issues in these five appeals will not span all of copyright law, the interpretation and analysis of copyright will undoubtedly impact the proposed legislation.
