Here is the latest update from Access Copyright, in a release sent out March 28, 2018:
|Update on Copyright Act Review|
Indications are that the Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology will begin public consultations in mid-April. Access Copyright is committed to encouraging creators and publishers to participate fully in the process, as well as taking part as an organization. We believe the review is a critical opportunity to re-examine the role that copyright plays for both creators and users and to address the Value Gap caused by 2012 amendments to the Act to ensure continued access to outstanding Canadian content for our classrooms.
