Information on Canada's Proposed Copyright Modernization Act

The latest attempt at reforming Canada's copyright legislation has begun.

Yesterday, the federal government introduced Bill C-32, An Act to Amend the Copyright Act.

The feds have set up a Balanced Copyright website to promote their initiative.

University of Ottawa law prof Michael Geist provides links to some of the day after media coverage and has already written his own preliminary assessment.

Concordia University librarian Olivier Charbonneau has summarized the points he made in an interview on the CTV network on his blog Culture Libre.

Many business organizations reacted favourably to the proposed reforms, for example the Business Coalition for Balanced Copyright and the Canadian Association of Broadcasters.
