Canadian Copyright: A Citizen's Guide

One of my favourite professors from FIMS, Sam Trosow, has co-authored a new book entitled “Canadian Copyright: A Citizen's Guide“.  The page I link to is the home page of the other co-author and has a few excerpts.  This site has a brief summary and links to where you can buy the book.

    Hi Jason, maybe you already knew, but Sam has started a blog: http://samtrosow.ca/. Also he is presenting at London Public Library on his book this Thursday the 10th; unfortunately I can't make it, but others may be interested. Cheers.

    Here's the info provided by CLA
    Professor Samuel Trosow, (co-author of the newly released book, Canadian Copyright: A
    Citizen's Guide, and member of the CLA Copyright Working Group) will share his thoughts on the
    current state of Canadian copyright law, as well as the prospects for a new bill this year.
    Thursday, January 10th, 7 – 9 pm
    London Central Library, Second Floor Reading Lounge
    251 Dundas Street
    In December 2007 the government was set to table a new revision to the Copyright Act of
    Canada. But an unexpected tide of opposition to what was characterized as the Canadian
    Digital Millenium Copyright Act, including over 20,000 people signing on to a Facebook
    Group to oppose new legislation, has resulted in the government holding back on introducing
    the bill.Why has copyright become such an important issue to so many people? Flickr, iPods,
    YouTube, DVDs, MP3 players – the way we use technology could be at risk.
    Samuel Trosow is an Associate Professor at the University of Western Ontario with a joint
    appointment in Faculty of Law and in the Faculty of Information and Media Studies. He is now
    the visiting faculty-scholar in-residence with the Canadian Association of University Teachers in
    Ottawa. In addition, he is a member of the Copyright Working Groups of the Canadian Library
    Association and the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Science. He is the co-author
    with Laura Murray of a new book Canadian Copyright: A Citizen's Guide.

    I think it was an LPL (or CLA?) e-mail that made me realise Sam had a new book but I didn't realise he had a blog so thanks for passing that along.
