Overview
We don't hear enough about European copyright law, especially when it comes to reforming the law. Is there anything we can learn from Europe? This conference is a forum to hear the various European perspectives on the same copyright issues faced in North America. This event will provide an opportunity to discuss and consider comparative and regional approaches emanating from Europe – which will contribute to ongoing debates regarding copyright policy in Canada and the US. This conference is designed for a wide-ranging audience, from government to the academy, from stakeholder organizations to members of the public. For more information, click here.
