Ebook Description

In the summer of 2012, the Supreme Court of Canada issued rulings on five copyright cases in a single day. The decisions, which were quickly dubbed "the copyright pentalogy," represent a seismic shift in Canadian copyright law. In this book, Canada's leading copyright scholars explore five issues raised by the pentalogy: the standard of review of copyright decisions; fair dealing that ensures a balance between the interests of creators and users of content; a technology-neutral approach to copyright law; the scope of copyright law; and the implications of the decisions for copyright collective management.
