Dahl published in BarNotes

Kurt Dahl has been published in the fall edition of BarNotes, the publication of the Saskatchewan Branch of the Canadian Bar Association. His article, A Touch of Grey: The State of the Law Re File Sharing discusses one of his frequently asked questions -is downloading music illegal in Canada.

Kurt canvasses issues pertaining to Canada’s Copyright Act and discusses the recent decision of the Federal Court in BMG Canada Inc. v. John Doe.  For more information about this topic, Kurt’s thesis is available here.

Dahl Defends Thesis on Future of Copyright in the Music Industry

Kurt successfully defended his Master of Laws thesis on the future of copyright in the music industry, and how digital technologies are overhauling the way in which musicians and music companies make money. The Master of Laws (LLM) is an advanced academic law degree that demands intense research into a specified field of study. Kurt completed his LLM in just under 2 years.

Pay it Forward – Kurt has asked that anyone who downloads his thesis donate $5 (on their honour) to a local charity of their choice, thereby creating some good from his hard work. Thus far, he has raised several hundred dollars for local charities. To read Kurt’s thesis, click here.
