Learn about the background of Canadian copyright law, criteria for protection, duration of protection, the unique unlocatable copyright owner provision, fair dealing and the differences between Canadian and U.S. copyright law. Most recent changes include the new copyright term extension in sound recordings, the Canadian notice and notice provision as well as border remedies for copyright infringement.
