Last week I gave a talk on the licences and their relationship to the public domain at the ATRIP Conference in Utrecht, Holland. ATRIP is the International Association for the Advancement of Teaching and Research in Intellectual Property. Abraham Drassinower of the University of Toronto Law School gave a fascinating paper dealing with CCH Canadian Ltd. v. Law Society of Upper Canada, a recent judgment of the Supreme Court of Canada involving a fresh look at the nature of authorship. I hope we can blog the paper later on. Many thanks to Professor Grosheide and the organizers for this spendid opportunity to situate our project in a wider context and to spread the word.Posted 22 April 2004
