Copyright Reform and the Canadian Medical Community

The Canadian Medical Association Journal features my opinion piece on the impact of potential copyright reform on the medical community.

Written and reviewed before last month's announcement on the government's plans, the article focuses on two key concerns – anti-circumvention and extended licensing. It seeks to bring the medical community into the fray, arguing that while it has been silent to date, "it can no longer remain on the sidelines. The medical community has the opportunity to emerge as a positive force for change by actively supporting a uniquely Canadian vision of copyright that supports both creator compensation and facilitates, rather than hinders, research and education."
