The Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) has just released a really good 11-page document called The Copyright Act and Academic Staff (February 2008) (pdf). It discusses what they feel needs to be addressed of concern to Higher Education in any upcoming copyright legislation.
And on that note, rumour has it that tomorrow will be the day that new legislation is introduced! Industry Minister Jim Prentice happens to be speaking on the U of C campus tomorrow, and I'll be there, possibly to hear him announce what is likely to be a pretty controversial bill. Oddly, the Order Paper says the bill would be introduced today, while the Projected Order of Business makes no mention of it.
