In the age of easily downloadable culture, messages about copyright are ubiquitous. If you're an artist, consumer, or teacher, copyright is likely a part of your everyday life. Yet no resource exists to explain Canadian copyright law to ordinary Canadians. In accessible language, using examples and case studies, this book parses the Copyright Act and explains issues pertinent to a range of particular groups of Canadians; it also makes a case for grassroots engagement in balanced legal reform.
"Canadian Copyright: A Citizen's Guide" is not an alarmist call to stop the pirating of culture, but an articulate assertion that artists and consumers need not see each other as enemies. It should be essential reading for all Canadians concerned by how Canadian copyright law and policy affects them.
