Copyright: Cases and Commentary on the Canadian and International Law, Second Edition
Availability: In Stock
Copyright law grants exclusive rights for limited terms to the authors of musical, literary, dramatic and artistic works. 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. This casebook 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.
