I will give a talk at Huntington University's Centre for Communication Studies on Monday October 28 2013 titled Canadian Copyright: Imperialism to Internationalism.
Canadian Copyright: Imperialism to Internationalism
Monday Oct 28 2013 at noon
Most histories of international copyright focus on the "great powers", such as Britain, France, and Germany. Canada’s experience with the international copyright was very different from those countries' experiences. Bannerman reveals the history of international copyright from the perspective of a smaller country and a net copyright importer. Canada struggled and failed to gain independence from Britain over its copyright legislation in the early twentieth century, and the question remains: Can there be a Canadian copyright?
Correction: The talk is scheduled to take place October 28, not November 28.
