Copyright and the State in Canada

Wednesday, October 9, 2019 13:00to14:30
Chancellor Day Hall NCDH 201, 3644 rue Peel, Montreal, QC, H3A 1W9, CA

Join the Intellectual Property Club for a conference with our favorite McGill Law alumnus, Michael Shortt, BCL/LLB'13, as we explore the law of Crown copyright in Canada in light of the Supreme Court’s recent Keatley Surveying decision. This case dealt with copyright in land surveys filed with provincial land registries. The Keatley Surveying judgment will be placed in context with the Federal Court of Appeal’s ruling in P.S. Knight Co v Canadian Standards Association, which held that statutes can be copyrighted.

Michael Shortt is an intellectual property lawyer at Fasken Martineau. As a litigator, he appeared before the Supreme Court of Canada, the Federal Court and Federal Court of Appeal, the Ontario and Québec superior courts, and the Copyright Board.

Refreshments served.

This event is eligible for inclusion as 1.5 hours of continuing legal education as reported by members of the Barreau du Québec.
