Creative Commons Announces Canadian Podcasting Legal Guide

Creative Commons of Canada recently announced that it has published a Canadian version of the well written and highly recommended Podcasting Legal Guide. As Colette Vogele, who helped author the original Podcasting Legal Guide, notes:

[T]he authors did nearly a complete re-write of the guide because copyright, trademark and publicity rights receive different treatment in Canada. One example, is that Canada has many collecting societies that need to be understood if licensing music from Canadian artists (see page 15). This adapted guide for Canada also includes a "copyright matrix" (page 16) and a "rights clearance flow chart" (page 19), both of which will help explain the various rights and who get's paid for what in the world of music licensing.

The Canadian version, with the intriguing subtitle "Northern Rules For The Revolution," is available in both html format and pdf format.
