Presentation: Fair Dealing’s future – artificial intelligence or willful ignorance?
Following a review of Canada’s Copyright Act in 2018, the then-Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology stated that “facilitating the informational analysis of lawfully acquired copyrighted content could help Canada’s promising future in artificial intelligence to become reality,” and recommended the Act be amended as necessary to support this vision.
