Copyright Law, Fall 2014
This course offers an intensive study of copyright law. Through analysis of classic and recent case law in Canada and other jurisdictions, students will learn the fundamentals of copyright doctrine, its theoretical justifications, and its enforcement and administration mechanisms.
The course will also discuss copyright law’s historic developments and its relationships with technology: from the printing press, to broadcasting, to digital technology, the Internet, and the cloud. The course will also examine some of copyright law’s constitutional foundations, including some of the tensions between copyright, freedom of expression, and free competition.
