     For Immediate Release:
     
     
     Ottawa, June 18, 2003 - The House of Commons Standing Committee on
     Canadian Heritage announced today that it hopes to launch its
     statutory review of the Copyright Act, as mandated by section 92 of
     that Act, in the fall of 2003.
     
     
     Section 92 further requires the Committee to complete its review and
     report back to Parliament within one year of the Minister's report,
     unless an extension is granted.  The Minister's report, Supporting
     Culture and Innovation: Report on the Provisions and Operation of the
     Copyright Act, was released by the Government of Canada in October
     2002.
     
     
     Since the Committee was prevented by other business from commencing
     its review before next fall, it is clear that the October 2003
     deadline will not be met. The Committee will therefore be seeking an
     extension to June 2004.
     
     
     In order to assist the Committee in planning its review, individuals
     and groups interested in presenting briefs and/or appearing before
     the Committee are requested to forward a summary of their submissions
     to the Clerk of the Committee by no later than September 15, 2003.
     If possible, this summary should be provided in electronic form and
     forwarded to the following address:  [heri@parl.gc.ca].
