New Canadian Coalition of Canadian Art Professionals on Copyright Reform

Categories: Artists Against DRMFair Use/Dealing

500+ members of Canada’s art community have formed a new coalition, the Coalition of Art Professionals, arguing for three principles to be enshrined in Canada’s copyright policy: (i) fair access to copyrighted material lies at the heart of copyright; (ii) artist and other creators require certainty of access; and (iii) anti-circumvention laws should not outlaw creative access.

Note: The Canadian Music Creators Coalition was also recently formed with a similar copyright policy reform agenda.
