Confused by Canadian Copyright?

If so you're in good company. Decisions of the Copyright Board of Canada have been overturned on appeal, generally to the benefit of those looking to use copyrighted work.
Now there's an opportunity for changes as explained by columnist Michael Geist who recently wrote on the situation in Appointment of New Copyright Board of Canada Chair Offers Chance for Change.
