Professor deBeer publishes article in Les cahiers de propriété intellectuelle

Posted on Friday, October 15, 2010

Professor Jeremy deBeer has published a paper in the most recent issue of the journal Les cahiers de propriété intellectuelle, entitled “La Commission du droit d'auteur du Canada : vingt années à « faire » l'histoire Juridique.” On the occasion of its twentieth anniversary, Professor deBeer reflects on The Copyright Board of Canada’s history. Unlike the Human Rights Commission or the Immigration and Refugee Board, the Copyright Board does not deal with issues such as fundamental freedoms or national security threats, and thus does not receive the type of publicity that these other organizations receive. Professor deBeer concludes that the Copyright Board plays a role that is both crucial and under-appreciated in setting Canadian copyright policy.
