Canadian Copyright Law, 3rd Edition
|Copyright infringement has always been an invisible crime. In the
past, artists and producers have lost millions every year when their works were
used without permission. At times, it was hard for even the most knowledgeable
to keep current and know when they had crossed that unseen line.
Now, the explosion of the Internet and other digital media is making copyright one of the most discussed issues of the new millennium. Many regard the Internet as a public forum and assume material is free for the taking. The line between what is protected and what is free is blurring further and the copyright issues are more complex than ever. Lesley Ellen Harris, lawyer and copyright expert, addresses these issues and more. She takes the convoluted legal jargon of the Canadian Copyright Act and sets it out in everyday language. She provides concrete examples to offer further clarification of complicated matters.
In this third edition of Canadian Copyright Law, Harris brings you the latest updates according to new Canadian legislation and international agreements. And she provides a complete update on copyright issues relating to digital media.
