Canadian Library Association Copyright Advocacy Kit

The Canadian Library Association (CLA) has produced an information kit called Fair and Balanced Copyright for Canadians to help librarians lobby federal parliamentarians about the much awaited upcoming copyright reform legislation that many fear will not provide an adequate balance between corporate owners' rights and user rights.

The document describes the library community's major concerns about any new legislation and provides tips on how to organize meetings with politicians.

The CLA website has an entire section on copyright issues with "the latest information on Canadian copyright reform, regulations, bills to amend the Copyright Act, selected case law, and copyright position statements of the Canadian Library Association and other library/education associations."
