Copyright Case Database

Using the menu to the left, select:

  1. the country whose cases you wish to search, and
  2. the method by which you wish to search.

This is a partial database of copyright cases in Canada and the United States from 1978 until 2008, indexed by issues and outcome in addition to the usual case info and parties' name. This should make it easier for researchers to generate empirical data.

Thanks to Professor Ann Bartow, Thomas Legault, and Jordan Teague for help in creating the database and to the University of Ottawa and the Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation for providing the necessary funding.
