In the public interest : the future of Canadian copyright law ( Book )
9 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From Grokster to Google, copyright has emerged as one of the Internet's most challenging legal issues. Once limited to a select group of scholars, copyright now captures front page headlines as millions of Canadians consider its impact on education, technology, communication, and culture. As Canada embarks on a new round of digital copyright reform, this collection of 19 essays from Canada's leading copyright experts provides context and analysis of the latest reform proposals. Edited by Professor Michael Geist, an internationally-regarded authority on Internet and technology law, the collection reviews international copyright norms, assesses dozens of specific Bill C-60 provisions, and identifies potential future copyright reform initiatives. Completed immediately after the introduction of Bill C-60, this timely volume provides policy makers, lawyers, judges, educators, and interested Canadians with the tools and knowledge they need to participate in a copyright debate that will shape the future of the Internet, culture, and education in Canada

The copyright pentalogy : how the Supreme Court of Canada shook the foundations of Canadian copyright law ( )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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
From "radical extremism" to "balanced copyright" : Canadian copyright and the digital agenda ( Book )
6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Copyright has long been viewed as one of the government's most difficult policy issues. It attracts passionate views from a wide range of stakeholders, including creators, consumers, businesses, and educators and it is the source of significant political pressure from the United States. The latest chapter in the Canadian copyright saga unfolded in June 2010 as Industry Minister Tony Clement and Canadian Heritage James Moore tabled Bill C-32, copyright reform legislation billed as providing both balance and a much-needed modernization of the law. The introduction marked the culmination of months of public discussion and internal government debate. This book represents an effort by some of Canada's leading copyright experts to shift away from the sloganeering that has marked the debate to date by moving toward an informed analysis of Bill C-32 and the future development of Canadian copyright law. Edited by Professor Michael Geist, an internationally regarded authority on Internet and technology law, it responds to the need for non-partisan, informed analysis of Bill C-32. An exceptional group of Canadian scholars from coast-to-coast have come together to assess Canada's plans for copyright reform and the digital agenda in this timely volume that features context for the reforms, analysis of its impact on technology, business, education, and creators, as well as a look ahead to future copyright and digital issues
Copyrighting science Canadian copyright reform and the future of scientific research by Michael A Geist ( )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The intellectual property law issues associated with scientific research, particularly cutting edge research involving biotechnology and genetics, have typically focused on patents. The scientific community has largely ignored copyright law, viewing it as a branch of intellectual property law more relevant to the arts than to the sciences. The idea/expression dichotomy, which holds that copyright law protects the expression of ideas, but not the ideas themselves, has been seen to provide the scientific community with the ideal balance of prtotection. Researchers can publish their findings secure in the knowledge that the analysis of their research as expressed in the scientific journals is protected by copyright. The underlying factual research, however, is not protected under copyright and thus can be used by other researchers. Copyright reforms involving new protections for databases and technological protection measures (TPMS) threaten to confer new rights in the ideas themselves, thereby creating the potential for significant new controls over access to scientific ideas. A sui generis database protection right was established in the European Union in the mid-1990s, while the United States enacted broad protections for TPMs in 1998. Canada is facing increasing pressure to adopt similar provisions into its national copyright law. This briefing paper provides an introduction to the scope and development of copyright law in Canada. It assesses proposals to establish new databases and TPM protection within Canadian copyright law. Finally, it identifies potential policy solutions to mitigate the adverse consequences that copyright reform may hold for scientific research in Canada

Dossier : Dispute Settlement in International Trade and Foreign Direct Investment ( )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This dossier has three articles:ʹ- Introduction to dispute settlement in International Trade and foreign direct investment. It states that the NAFTA dispute settlement mechanism is, unlike most international agreements, to arbitrate where it has no neutral presiding. So it concludes by asking the question why foreign judges continue to interpret US domestic law. It suggests instead that the substantive AD/CVD obligations and the Dispute Settlement Understanding be used, which all four parties have already accepted in the World Trade Organisation.ʹ- International Investment Dispute Settlement Procedures: The Evolving Regime For Foreign Direct Investment. It states that the continuous development of investment dispute settlement procedures presents important opportunities to advance the rule of law in international economic relations.ʹ

Computer and e-mail workplace surveillance in Canada the shift from reasonable expectation of privacy to reasonable surveillance by Canadian Judicial Council ( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper examines the issue of computer & electronic mail surveillance from a Canadian legal perspective, with specific focus on surveillance within the judiciary. Part one provides background on current computer & e-mail monitoring practices, including the main rationales that companies provide for installing surveillance technologies. An environmental scan of leading technologies presently available in the marketplace is included. Following a brief review of leading United States jurisprudence, part two canvasses the legal approaches to computer surveillance in Canada, including examination of case law from courts & administrative panels. This part notes a shift in the legality of computer surveillance toward an assessment of its reasonableness. Part three proposes six criteria that should be considered in such an assessment and part four applies the reasonableness criteria to prospective computer surveillance of the judiciary
