The Green Paper identified five separate copyright policy issues critical to economic growth, job creation, and cultural development on which the Task Force planned to conduct further work, including the issue of how the government can facilitate the further development of a robust online licensing environment.
In response to feedback from the April 2015 public meeting that the government can play a useful role by facilitating dialogues between and among industry sectors and by convening stakeholder groups to make recommendations on specific issues, the Task Force hosted a subsequent public meeting on December 9, 2016 to facilitate a constructive, cross-industry dialogue among stakeholders about ways to promote a more robust and collaborative digital marketplace for copyrighted works. This public meeting focused specifically on initiatives that relate to standards development, interoperability across digital registries, and cross-industry collaboration. The goal of the event was to provide a platform for discussion in order to understand the current state of affairs, identify challenges, discuss paths forward, and determine in what ways government can be of further assistance.
