Response or Comment
Intellectual Property Scholarship, Copyright Policy, Canada
As a group of Canadian Intellectual Property Law scholars, we write regarding the Ministers’ recently launched consultation on extending the term of copyright protection in order to meet Canada’s CUSMA commitments. With this letter, which we jointly submit in response to the call for comments, we wish to express our shared concerns about both the proposed term extension and, more immediately, the inappropriately curtailed nature of this consultation process.
