Copyright Modernisation Act Bill C-11 Comes Into Force

Bookmark and Share
The consumer-oriented provisions of Bill C-11, the Copyright Modernisation Act, have come into force. The Bill will allow users to utilise copyrighted content for non-commercial parodies, satire and mash-ups, as well as copy their legally acquired content onto different devices.

The Bill will also require ISPs to pass on notices they receive from rightsholders concerning copyright infringement to users suspected of illegally downloading or sharing content. This aspect of the Bill has however been delayed in order to implement the provisions in a "balanced, effective and efficient manner".

Commenting on the news, Canadian Music Publishers Association (CMPA) Executive Director Catharine Saxberg said: "While the Government has had much to say about the new consumer friendly aspects of C-11, they have had much less to say about the serious problems this law poses for creators and rights holders. With the announcement of these regulations, tangible sources of revenue for creators and rights holders are further jeopardised. We continue to raise our concerns with the government and hope that they will eventually recognise the unfortunate repercussions of C-11, and the value and importance of creative industries to Canada."
