I think it is wise to be cautious, and to avoid any liability that might entail from a non-permissioned use.

Unless the film is in public domain, or the church (or similar organization) has direct permission from the actual rightsholders, I’d generally point the organizers to:

They specialize in providing those permissions.

I gather that the Canadian copyright review has been kicked off, just a few days ago I believe. It should be a source of some interesting analysis.

“Dyslexia occurs in at least one in 10 people, putting more than 700 million children
and adults worldwide at risk of life-long illiteracy and social exclusion.” *

… all of whom would be potential beneficiaries under Article 3 of the Marrakesh Treaty.

Comment on Copyright: A Worldwide Audience Is Watching by Lesley Ellen Harris http://www.copyright.com/blog/copyright-worldwide-audience-watching/#comment-13 Wed, 15 Nov 2017 20:39:00 +0000 http://www.copyright.com/?post_type=blog_post&p=14416#comment-13 Hi Michael, there are several things I could address in your piece but I am just going to focus on two of them. First, Canada has always thought for itself when it comes to copyright reform. It is a unique country and its copyright laws reflect that uniqueness through its economic rights and strong moral rights. I sometimes say that Canada’s copyright laws are both influenced by those in the U.S. and those in European countries but that is a simplification of the process. Second, you fail to mention that the Canadian government will be reviewing the Canadian Copyright Act this year, something mandated by the amendments in 2012.

Comment on Music Licensing: The Difference Between Public Performance and Synchronization Licenses by Paul Custance http://www.copyright.com/blog/music-licensing-public-performance-license-synchronization/#comment-11 Thu, 05 Oct 2017 16:02:00 +0000 http://www.copyright.com/?post_type=blog_post&p=12570#comment-11 I’m just wondering – if you were going to set up a new music video streaming service (e.g. vevo) would you need to clear three licenses for the publishing – sync, mechanicals and public performance licensing? Or because you’re not using the music over your own video / adapted video you wouldn’t need a sync license?

Comment on Copyright Perspectives: “Appropriation Art” – Transformative Use, or Derivative Abuse? by Kj Zeilstra Tanner http://www.copyright.com/blog/appropriation-art-transformative-use-derivative-abuse/#comment-10 Wed, 20 Sep 2017 20:32:00 +0000 http://www.copyright.com/?post_type=blog_post&p=14028#comment-10 I think there is no way in the world these new photos are transformative. I hope the photographer gets the money he is due.

Comment on Using Data Analytics to Drive Strategy in the Academic STM Library Space by Arden Olson http://www.copyright.com/blog/using-data-analytics-drive-strategy-academic-stm-library-space/#comment-7 Wed, 12 Jul 2017 13:36:00 +0000 http://www.copyright.com/?post_type=blog_post&p=13549#comment-7 Forgive me for stating the obvious but usage is driven by need of the end user. The library is in the middle of the publisher and the end user. The end user needs come the content of the courses and that comes from the professors teaching the courses. So by going to the websites of the professors of the schools teaching classes and find out what are their research areas. For example; if you find there are a lot of research on Test Generation, Fault Simulation, Design for Testability, Computer-Aided Design, and Built-In Self-Test then publish in those areas. Marry your text to the research and demonstrate to the library that your publishing matches what is being taught. Your goal should be to at least get on the syllabus. If your text matches the research you should get usage. Most of this information can and should come from sales reps

(That is, is this another Disney-bill to keep Mickey Mouse under lock and key?) Or is the period of copyright actually being >reduced< to something more reasonable?
