"Our Government recognizes the critical role that modern copyright laws play in protecting and creating jobs in Canada's digital economy," said Minister Paradis. "We have delivered on our commitment to modernize Canada's copyright legislation and strike the right balance between the needs of creators and users."
"This is the most comprehensive effort to modernize our copyright laws in over a decade," said Minister Moore. "It is widely supported by creator groups, consumer organizations and the businesses that drive Canada's economy."
A critical element of the Copyright Modernization Act is the requirement that Parliament revisit the Copyright Act every five years. This will serve as a reminder to current and future Parliaments and governments of the important role that modern and updated copyright laws play in our economy.
