Bill C-32 (40th Parliament, 3rd Session) committee  Absolutely. I think you're correct to point out that, especially when you're dealing with a situation where remuneration is currently received by creators and by other rights holders, removing the remuneration would conflict with the normal exploitation of a work or would unreaso

Bill C-32 (40th Parliament, 3rd Session) committee  Based on our study, we believe that about $60 million is at risk as a result of the scope of fair dealing in the education sector, as well as other education-related exemptions provided for in Bill C-32.

Bill C-32 (40th Parliament, 3rd Session) committee  You're asking me a lot of things. I'm going to start by saying that defining the education sector would be helpful.

Bill C-32 (40th Parliament, 3rd Session) committee  Thank you, Mr. Chair, mesdames et messieurs, members of the committee. I'll begin by explaining what Access Copyright does.

Canadian Heritage committee  I was going to say legal certainty, but I think Glenn took that away from me. So instead of legal certainty, I will reiterate something I've mentioned a few times already today, and that is, don't put in the hands of the court what should be determined by Parliament.

Canadian Heritage committee  No, no, quite the opposite. It's not a question of boxing the courts into a corner. What happens is that you give free rein for the courts to determine--

Canadian Heritage committee  --what the policy should be, as opposed to Parliament determining what the policy should be. That is an important distinction, a very important distinction. The courts are not elected officials.

Roanie Levy

Canadian Heritage committee  That's an example where you could have an exception created for parody. There is, in fact, no clear exception for parody in our Canadian legislation. Some argue that it is embedded in fair dealing; others say it is not. This is one of the problems with fair dealing: you never kno

Roanie Levy

Canadian Heritage committee  One thing I'd like to point out is that this challenge you're outlining is a challenge that pretty much every country looking at their copyright acts has to live with all the time.
