Crown Copyright E-Petition Update

This is an update to the Library Boy post of May 31, 2017 entitled Petition to House of Commons to Fix Crown Copyright.

University of Alberta Copyright Librarian Amanda Wakaruk had circulated a petition asking the Government of Canada to make publicly available government works part of the public domain.

Wakaruk provided an update earlier this week on a government information listserv:
"The petition closed on September 23 with almost three times the number of signatories required for certification. It is also one of the few e-petitions to have signatories from all provinces and territories. The e-petition is scheduled for tabling in the House of Commons on Friday, October 20. The Government of Canada will then have 45 days to respond."
Wakaruk has more information on the topic on her Fix Crown Copyright website.
