    Digital technology has evolved dramatically, changing the way Canadians work, live and engage locally and globally. The emergence of the Internet has blurred the line between creators, users, producers, and distributors of copyrighted works.

    Canadian copyright law needs to be updated to give Canadian creators and consumers the tools they need to engage with confidence in the digital marketplace. These updates will also help foster creativity, innovation and economic growth.

    The Government believes that Canadians themselves must be able to contribute if future updates are to be a true reflection of Canada's interests. These nation-wide consultations are intended to provide all Canadians with a chance to voice their opinions on what is needed to make the system work, and to ensure that all perspectives are taken into account on copyright modernization.

    Discussion Question

    How do Canada's copyright laws affect you? How should existing laws be modernized?
