In September, the department of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada launched a consultation to gather additional evidence to help the Government determine whether and what copyright policy measures should be taken to ensure Canada’s copyright framework continues to achieve its underlying policy objectives and related priorities in the face of the challenges brought by AI and Internet of things. PIAC expressed its support for the government’s efforts to expand users’ rights through the clarification and development of exceptions in the Copyright Act and asked that the government promote society’s interest in fostering future creative innovation by prioritizing a robust public domain and ensuring users are able to fully exercise their access rights. We also commented on issues relating to circumventing technological protection measures (TPM) and having an exception to enable the repair of software-embedded devices.
