  1. An interesting session on international agencies and copyright, but too Euro- and Brit- centric for someone based in Canada. I found it odd that a Brit doesn’t know that Canada is a Commonwealth/common law country and copyright here follows the British model of automatic copyright that does not need to be registered. The issue here at the moment is ‘fair dealing’ -how much can schools and libraries copy…. and that is being fought out in the common law courts. I wouid have been interested also to hear opinions on Creative Commons vs. DRM restricted eBooks.
