EU Demands for Trade Deal Would Reshape Canadian IP Law

The EU draft indicates the treaty would also dramatically reshape Canadian copyright law.  Indeed, when combined with the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (the other ongoing secret negotiation), the two agreements would render Canadian copyright law virtually unrecognizable.  The notion of a “made-in-Canada” approach promoted by Industry Minister Tony Clement – already under threat from ACTA – would be lost entirely, replaced by a made-in-Washington-and-Brussels law.
