Copyright reforms come into force

Lexpert has been following the many recent changes in copyright law – including the new Copyright Modernization Act, which cleared the House of Commons in June.

Now, as Alexandra Stockwell has outline on Stikeman Elliott’s Canadian Technology & IP Law blog, most of the new provisions of, and amendments to, the Canadian Copyright Act have now come into force.

Lexpert spoke with Goodmans’ David Zitzerman in the summer about the implications of the reforms, and did a cover feature on entertainment law in our April 2012 issue (one of the practice areas most affected by the reforms).

We will continue to keep a close eye on this rapidly evolving area of law.
