 Eric Schwartz Quoted in The Globe and Mail

October 21, 2009

Eric Schwartz is quoted in The Globe and Mail's "The (Legal) Music Fades Out For Canadians," regarding Canadian hosted websites that allow illegitimate file-sharing. Because Canada is out of step with most Western countries on copyright reform, allowing users to obtain copyrighted material at no cost, a growing number of legitimate download sites in the U.S. and Europe are not available in Canada. "Canada has made itself a victim of this. It has allowed the business to get established and opposition to grow," says Schwartz. Industries may continue to shun Canada if reform does not occur. Schwartz presented "A Snapshot of U.S. Copyright Law" at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars as part of this debate.
