Canadian Copyright Reform Takes Effect by Unknown Lamer
An anonymous reader writes “This morning, the majority of Bill
C-11, Canada’s copyright reform bill, took
effect, marking the most significant changes to Canadian
copyright law in decades. Michael Geist summarizes
the changes, which include expanded fair dealing, new protection for
creators of user generated content, consumer exceptions such as time
shifting, format shifting, and backup copies, and a cap on liability
for non-commercial infringement.”
