Fair Dealing In A Digital World: Striking a Balance Between Creator and User Rights (RECORDING) 

Jun. 17, 2014
Online

Co-presented by CBA's Entertainment, Media and Communications Law Section and CBA's National Intellectual Property Section

There is a constant tug-of-war in the Copyright Act which seeks to ensure that creators of protected works get their "just reward" while, at the same time, promote the public interest by encouraging their dissemination by users.

The 2012 amendments to the Copyright Act included an extension of the fair dealing provisions which allow users to engage in activities that might otherwise amount to copyright infringement. Their actual impact in an increasingly digital economy may be limited, however, given the protection given to digital locks. Additionally, there is significant uncertainty as to when and what categories of copyrighted materials can be re-purposed through social media and by whom.

Join us for an informative webinar which explores some of the legal challenges and opportunities for creators and users of protected works in our digital economy.
