Struggling Artists and Copyright Rules

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Recent changes to copyright rules in Europe are designed to better compensate artists whose work is fuelling the revenue earned by digital platforms, including YouTube. But anti-censorship advocates have concerns that the new regulations will stifle innovation and harm free speech. Should these new rules be a roadmap for Canada as it aims to update its own copyright regulations? Activist and author Cory Doctorow, and musicians Miranda Mulholland and Donald Quan join Steve Paikin to discuss the issues.
