Irwin Law is pleased to announce publication of In The Public Interest: The Future of Copyright Law in Canada, edited by Michael Geist with contributions from 19 of Canada’s leading copyright experts. As Canada embarks on a new round of digital copyright reform, this collection of essays provides context and analysis of the latest reform proposals.
The text may also be viewed online under a creative commons licence which allows for non-commercial, personal use. The publisher, the editor, and the contributors hope that the widespread availability of the book on the internet will inform and enrich public discourse on copyright issues as Canadian parliamentarians debate the amendments to the Copyright Act contained in Bill C-60.
This timely volume provides policy makers, lawyers, judges, educators, and interested Canadians with the tools and knowledge they need to participate in a copyright debate that will shape the future of the Internet, culture, and education in Canada.
