With the shift towards an information economy and the rapid development of digital technologies, copyright is fast becoming one of the most dynamic, critical, and controversial areas of Canadian law and policy.

Copyright: Cases and Commentary on the Canadian and International Law, Second Edition presents extracts from the leading cases from both Canadian and international jurisprudence to illustrate the legal concepts, doctrinal evolution, and current approaches to copyright issues. The revised second edition reflects the important case law and statutory amendments that have taken place over the past five years, including the Supreme Court of Canada's so-called copyright pentalogy and the newly enacted Copyright Modernization Act.

This casebook covers important topics such as

  • Historical and modern judicial perspectives on protecting copyright
  • Key international treaties related to copyright/ copyright territoriality including:
    • Harvard College v. Canada, [2002] 4 S.C.R.
