Abstract
The USMCA, when ratified, will extend the term of Copyright in Canada for 20 years, from life plus 50 to life plus 70. This session will provide context into why this change is happening, highlight how libraries and other organizations have responded to this incursion into our common heritage and discuss what this term extension could mean for the Canadian public domain.
