From I Value Canadian Stories:
THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT MUST TAKE ACTION NOW TO FULFILL ITS 2022 BUDGET PROMISE TO FIX THE COPYRIGHT ACT.
Everyone can agree that workers should get paid for the work they do. Nobody should be asked to live without a paycheque. Not teachers or professors, nor the writers, illustrators, playwrights and all other artists and publishers they rely on. Copyright is an indispensable revenue source for creators and how many get paid.
Yet for ten years and counting, Canadian creators and publishers have not been paid when educational institutions outside of Quebec copy their work.
