On October 25, 2012, the Privy Council set out when the amendments to the Copyright Act, otherwise known as the Copyright Modernization Act, will come into force.

Most amendments will be in effect after the notice is published in the Canada Gazette.

The provisions linked to the adoption by Canada of the WIPO Copyright Treaty (WCT) and the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty (WPPT) will come into force when the treaties come into force in Canada.

The “notice and notice” provisions relating to ISP providers in Canada (Sections 41.25, 41.26, and 41.27(3)) will not come into force until a later unspecified date, which will probably happen after regulations are adopted in this regard.

The full text of the Order is displayed below. More section-specific comments to follow.
