Is copyright important for artists? Are initiatives such as Creative Commons good for creators? What does a “YouTube exception” mean for content providers? With Bill C-11, the new copyright legislation currently before Parliament, the legal landscape for the creative sector is on the edge of major change. CLaw and CIPPIC invite you to a lively discussion and debate that reflects perspectives from across the user/creator spectrum.
