Drawing on expertise from both sides of the Canada–U.S. border, the One Issue, Two Voices series is designed to stimulate dialogue on policy issues that have a significant impact on the bilateral relationship. This publication is a primer on current issues in copyright law in Canada and the United States focusing on the transformative changes underway in the copyright regimes in both countries.

Panelists Barry Sookman and Eric Schwartz discussed the critical challenges and issues posed by the new digital technologies and debate the controversial approaches to copyright reform and enforcement in their respective countries. Giuseppina D'Agostino, professor at York University's Osgoode Hall Law School, and director of its Intellectual Property Law and Technology Program, acted as moderator. This presentation was particularly relevant to members of the cultural, academic, business and legal communities, public policy analysts, government policy analysts, economists, and others with an interest in a comparative view of copyright issues and social policy in Canada and the United States.
