UNPACK SODRAC Symposium

In the recent case of Canadian Broadcasting Corp. v. SODRAC 2003 Inc., 2015 SCC 57, the Supreme Court of Canada considered whether “broadcast-incidental copies" made by television broadcasters engage the exclusive right of reproduction in the Copyright Act, and whether broadcasters are bound by the terms of the licence approved by the Copyright Board. Split along various lines, the Court's ruling has set the course for continued controversy over the principle of "technological neutrality", the meaning of "reproduction" in the digital age, and the role of the Copyright Board in setting terms for the use of protected works. In this Symposium, leading scholars, practitioners and experts in the field unpack the SODRAC decision and its significance for the future of Canada’s copyright law.

Symposium Organizers: Dr. Carys Craig, Associate Dean (Research & Institutional Relations), Osgoode Hall Law School Dr. Ariel Katz, Associate Professor, Innovation Chair – Electronic Commerce, Faculty of Law, University of Toronto
