Canada's Stronger Copyright law - a baker's dozen examples

Howard Knopf's article talking about the ways that Canadian Copyright law is already "stronger" that US copyright law really is a must-read to put the current lobbying from both US-based associations and the US government itself into context.

Mr Knopf also provided an important reminder on the so-called obligation to ratify the 1996 WIPO treaties. The USA didn't join Berne (the treaty that forms the core of WIPO copyright) until 1989, 61 years after Canada ratified in 1928. If we take the USA's lead on this, given they ratified their own policy laundered 1996 treaties in 1998 with the DMCA, we have until 2059 to ratify the 1996 WIPO treaties.
