Copyright consultation process extended to October 22
Over 600 submissions have now been received by the departments of Industry Canada and Canadian Heritage discussing the Consultation Paper on Digital Copyright Issues and its corollary on section 31 of the Copyright Act. Because of the volume of submissions, which now include the Canadian Association of Broadcasters, the National Association of Broadcasters, the Canadian Cable Television Association, AOL Time Warner Inc and hundreds of private submissions, the departments have elected to prolong the reply period. The deadline has been moved from this week to October 22. Canadian NEW MEDIA will carry a full summary of the most anticipated submissions by the largest U.S. and Canadian stakeholders. Already, some observers are noting with surprise that rules against circumvention and other aspects of the reform process are encountering unexpected resistance from Canada’s largest corporate players (CNM, Sept. 20/01).
