Copyright consultation with the federal gov’t ministers

(Message from Access Copyright.)

In the coming weeks, the Government of Canada will be hosting a nationwide consultation on copyright modernization. As a creator or publisher, this presents a critical opportunity for you to have your say on copyright and its implications in our increasingly digital environment – issues that directly affect your livelihood.

Access Copyright is strongly encouraging you to get involved by participating in these consultations. There are a number of ways you can participate, including an online submission centre, a discussion forum, or by attending one of the town hall meetings, live, or via interactive webcast.

Registration for Town Hall meetings

A town hall meeting is scheduled in Montréal on July 30, from 1 to 3 p.m., hosted by the Honourable Tony Clement, Minister of Industry, and the Honourable James Moore, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages. Interested participants can attend the meetings live or over the Internet via interactive webcast. This means that Internet users can submit comments and questions in real time from their computers.

Space is limited so we urge you to register as soon as possible. To register, click here. FAQs and more information on the meetings is available by clicking here.
