Course Testimonials

Philosophy of our copyright training: “The course materials are remarkably free of legal or technical jargon, and are therefore eminently readable and easy to absorb. Even court cases are used sparingly, and only when they help to clarify a point…aims to achieve a balance between explaining the law and giving enough detail in order to also be able to understand the intricacies of the existing law.”  Read the entire online course review.

    Hi Lesley,
    I’d like to register for your “Canadian Copyright Law: Canada Hits the Reset Button” eTutorial course starting in January but when I click on the “Register” button, I get a message that says pricing options are not available yet….check back later. Is there another way to register?

  7. Lesley says:

    Hi Genevieve, the eTutorial on Canadian Copyright Law covers the amendments to the Canadian Copyright Act as well as recent court cases. Much has changed in Canadian copyright law during 2012; the eTutorial covers all of Canadian copyright law so that you’ll have an overview of how the law now works, whether it’s “old” or “new” law, and the newer elements will be in context. All the amendments to the Copyright Act are highlighted in the e-lessons so that you can distinguish yourself between what’s new in the Act.

  8. Genevieve Bowman says:

    Hi Lesley, You currently have a eTutorial on Canadian Copyright Law (16 e-lessons) that is under offer for January, 2013. You have had this available for a while, now that the Moderization Act is in effect will you update this course or offer a new one that deals strictly with how the changes effect Copyright in Canada, or is there substantial information on the changes in this current course offereing? Also, does this course go into how the Supreme Court decisions have effected local decision making?
