Copyright law and policy was an important part of season one of the Law Bytes podcast with several episodes devoted to Canadian reforms as well as international developments. The Canadian copyright review figured prominently: Episode 4 featured clips from my appearance before the Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology including exchanges with MPs, a later episode contained my lecture on what the Canadian experience teaches about the future of copyright reform, and Carys Craig came on the podcast to discuss the Industry committee copyright review report.
The podcast also featured episodes on broader copyright policy and international developments. Australian law professor Rebecca Giblin highlighted her research on taking authors’ rights seriously, Myra Tawfik explored the implications of the USMCA on copyright policy, Jamie Love talked about the proposed WIPO Broadcasting Treaty, Daphne Keller helped navigate intermediary liability policy, James Plotkin explained the implications of copyright threats, notices, lawsuits in Canada, and Rick Shera discussed the WIPO BRIP database and the risks of false IP claims.
