Earlier this year, the University of Ottawa Press published The Copyright Pentalogy: How the Supreme Court of Canada Shook the Foundations of Canadian Copyright Law, an effort by many of Canada’s leading copyright scholars to begin the process of examining the long-term implications of the copyright pentalogy. The book is available for purchase and is also available as a free download under a Creative Commons licence. The book features fourteen articles on copyright written by independent scholars from coast to coast. The diversity of contributors provides a rich view the copyright pentalogy, with analysis of the standard of review of copyright decisions, fair dealing, technological neutrality, the scope of copyright law, and the implications of the decisions for copyright collective management.
I am pleased to announce plans for a copyright conference planned for this fall in connection with the book. On Friday, October 4, 2013, the University of Ottawa will host a conference featuring many of the contributors to the book discussing issues such as fair dealing, technological neutrality, and other implications of the Supreme Court of Canada decisions. Further details on the conference to come shortly.
