Consumers’ Rights in Copyrighted Works: A Play Back for Balance on Bill C-32 “Trio Provisions”


Pascale Chapdelaine is a PhD candidate at Osgoode Hall Law School and a member of IP Osgoode. Her current research seeks to define and substantiate consumers’ rights with respect to copies of copyrighted works that consumers lawfully access.

In a Brief submitted to the Legislative Committee on Bill C-32, I offered some comments on the “Trio Provisions”.  These provisions seek to clarify the rights of individuals who access copyrighted works, e.g., the provisions on “Non-commercial User-generated Content”, “Reproduction for Private Purposes” and “Fixing Signals and Recording Programs for Later Listening or Viewing”. To read the Brief, click here.
