Lunch & Learn

The latest attempt to modernize the Copyright Act of Canada has received third and final reading this week before Parliament. Bill C-11 attempts to bring Canada’s copyright laws into the modern age with what are seen as significant updates and amendments.
C-11 has been described as ‘flawed but fixable’. What are the potential impacts of its flaws and strengths on Canada’s Fair Dealing provision, and what can be done to make sure users’ rights aren’t eroded? Come to this presentation by Dal’s own Intellectual Property Assistant and find out. All are welcome–don’t forget to bring your lunch!
