Canadian Government Response to Crown Copyright E-Petition

This is a follow-up to the October 18, 2017 Library Boy post entitled Crown Copyright E-Petition Update.

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

On December 4, 2017, the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) and Sean Casey, the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Canadian Heritage (PCH), responded to the petition.

Wakaruk analyzed the government response on the Fix Crown Copyright website.
