Executive Director's update

Happy New Year everyone!

The Copibec team is enthusiastic about getting back to work this month. We’re certainly hopeful 2021 will be easier for creators and the entire cultural sector.

Overview of the coming months

As we mentioned in December, there’s no shortage of projects for 2021! Among other initiatives, our team will be busy launching the DONA platform and developing the Copibec Hub in the months ahead.

We’ll also be negotiating with the representatives for college and university institutions to renew their agreements.

Your copyright collective remains very involved in defending the rights of authors and their publishers in connection with the lawsuit pitting Access Copyright against York University. In addition, we’ll stay on top of any developments when it comes to the Copyright Act’s review.

Make sure you don’t miss anything by following us on Facebook and Twitter. You can also visit our LinkedIn page for tips on copyright in a work setting.
