Welcome to the website of the Creators' Copyright Coalition. We at the CCC are committed to access to our creative works just as we are committed to copyright: we work for copyright legislation that ensures both. Here on our op-ed pages we will be posting opinion, commentary, links, and news of interest to creators and others engaged in copyright reform. Elsewhere, you'll find our archive of studies, handbooks and press releases. And while we're not currently hosting a discussion forum, comments sent to us may be posted or noted here (unless you ask us not to).

Another copyright conflab

By Op-Ed Editor | March 13, 2009

*Thursday, March 26, 2009
* Speaker: Richard Owens*
* **_Who Says It’s Fair? The Politics of Fair Dealing and the Artist_*

This talk will examine the nature and extent of the right of fair dealing under the Copyright Act (Canada) and the debate on using the implementation of the World Intellectual Property Organization Copyright Treaty to radically enlarge fair dealing rights. Is any such enlargement justified, especially after the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in CCH? The issues will be explored from the perspective of the creative artist and, in particular, with reference to photographers and their creations.
