Copyright 49 provides a discussion forum on the interplay, issues and relevancy of U.S. copyright to Canadians. With the two countries sharing a border, and sharing many elements of their cultural, content and information industries, it's important to understand how U.S. copyright events, proposed legislation, current law, and court cases affect these industries in Canada.
I am a Canadian copyright lawyer, author of the book, Canadian Copyright Law, 4th ed., and I currently live in the Washington DC area. I love being able to be current on Canadian, U.S. and global copyright issues. I attend various copyright events in DC, keep a pulse on U.S. legislation and court cases, and am on top of trends in the copyright industries in the U.S., Canada and around the world. If there's a copyright issue you need to specifically follow or want in-depth analysis of an issue on this blog, please contact me at: "lesley at copyrightlaws.com". -- Lesley
