Why understanding Canadian copyright is important


English and cultural studies professor Laura Murray didn’t set out to set up a website on Canadian copyright or then co-write a book on the subject, but that’s exactly what she’s done.

Along with Samuel Trosow, she’s now released a second edition of Canadian Copyright – A Citizen’s Guide, which updates the first edition which came out in 2007, and includes some of the major legal changes of the last few years in Canadian copyright law.

RCI’s Wojtek Gwiazda talked to Laura Murray about the book, the reason for her interest in copyright, and why people should realize they have more rights then they realize under copyright law. Professor Murray is a professor in the Department of English and Cultural Studies at Canada’s Queen’s University.
