Copyright Act review announced

Monday, February 26, 2018

The Canadian Government announced a legislative review of the Copyright Act on December 14, 2017. The 2012 Copyright Modernization Act included a requirement for a parliamentary review of the Copyright Act every five years. The review will be led by the Standing Committee on Innovation, Science and Economic Development, and the Honorable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, had this to say, “In order to thrive in the digital economy, we need to support both creators and users of copyrighted content by providing them with a predictable, transparent and effective legal environment. I am looking forward to the review as it provides an opportunity to ensure that Canada’s current copyright framework effectively supports creativity and innovation.”
