Canada: Balanced Copyright (Copyright Modernization Act)

In my holiday reading was one item that noted that Canada had modernized its copyright law in 2012.  Those familiar with copyright law in Canada will know that it needed to be brought up to date, so congratulations to them for doing so!

The Canadian government has created a very informative web site about the changes in its copyright law.  For those who are affected by this law, this is a good place for you to understand it. For those of you unaffected by it, you may want to look at this site just to see what a wonderful job they've done with it!  Perhaps the U.S. Copyright Office should use this as one of its models as it looks to revamp its web site.
