Industry Minster Tony Clement announced Thursday the appointment of J. Nelson Landry to the Copyright Board of Canada. Landry served as an arbitrator in intellectual property and was chosen as part of a national call for candidates. He served as an instructor for a patent-agent training course at the Intellectual Property Institute of Canada from 2002 to 2005. He was also a senior partner at the Ogilvy Renault law firm. The Copyright Board of Canada is a regulatory body that establishes the royalties to be paid for the use of copyrighted works. The board regulates tariffs for copyright owners and users of copyright-protected works.
