Canada: Stronger in 22 Ways

Copyright lawyer Howard Knopf spoke to Search Engine about 21 ways (+1) that Canadian copyright law is stronger and more restrictive than American law. Canada suffers much abuse from the US - especially where American-dominated IP lobby groups are running the show, as they so often are - and even, unfortunately, in respectable Canadian publications like the Globe and Mail. Canada's representatives and Canadian commentators would do well to memorize these 22 points, rather than be caught speechless the next time Americans choose the term 'backwater' to refer to their closest trading partner.
Listen to Knopf here.
