Main Description
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 that near-constant access to the internet is ubiquitous and the mainstream explosion of digital formats, copyright is one of the most important issues for creative professionals, consumers of that media, and those who work in related industries. Many regard the internet as a public forum and assume that either material is free for the taking or that they'll never be caught. 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 fourth 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. Whether you are a creator or user of copyright material, Canadian Copyright Law will keep you current on copyright law in Canada and its applications to your situation - to protect your creations, content and products in these rapidly changing markets.
