This book brings together contributions from reputed experts on Canadian intellectual property law which highlight its special features. Situated at the crossroads between legal traditions in Europe and the United States, Canada’s intellectual property laws blend various elements from these regions and can offer innovative approaches. The chapters focus primarily on patents, trademarks, and copyrights, covering both historical and contemporary developments. They are designed to bring perspective and reflection upon what has become in recent years a very rich intellectual property environment.

Whatever the direction a discussion nowadays on contemporary copyright is taking, it is fair to assume that the issue of the balancing of interests will be raised. The chapter looks at the official balancing acts that meet in copyright statutes anywhere (economic versus moral rights; copyright versus related rights; rights versus remedies) as well as those that are not so often mentioned, but that nevertheless have an impact on the understanding of the law (justifications for copyright; shifting identities within copyright law). Canadian law is used to provide examples, but the reasoning can easily resonate elsewhere. Keywords: copyright, copyright balance, copyright subtext, international copyright, collective management, copyright exceptions.
