After not touching copyright when asked about cultural priorities twice last week during Question Period, Conservate Canadian Heritage Minister Bev Oda has told the Hill Times that the government plans to introduce copyright reform legislation. Oda says:
"Copyright legislation has to be amended to make [compliant] our copyright laws and ratify the international treaties. We will be introducing a new copyright bill that will expedite meeting our international obligations but also making sure that we have a copyright regime and a copyright framework that's appropriate."
While most will take this to mean that a WIPO Copyright bill is on the way, that isn't quite what Oda says.
