New copyright legislation was introduced today in the House of Commons, as the Copyright Modernization Act, Bill C-11. The Bill is expected to be substantially similar to the previous version.
This is the fourth attempt to amend the Copyright Act. Previous bills were introduced in 2005 (Bill C-60), 2008 (Bill C-61), and 2010 (Bill C-32). The amendments introduced today should not be confused with amendments in 2002 to the Copyright Act also introduced as Bill C-11 that related to broadcaster rights, now subject of a Supreme Court of Canada appeal (SCC #34321).
