COPYRIGHT AGREEMENT


-ARRANGEMENT BETWEEN CANADA AND THE UNITED STATES EFFECTIVE DECEMBER 1923. On the orders of the day:


LIB

Louis Édouard Fernand Rinfret (Secretary of State of Canada)

Liberal

Hon. FERNAND RINFRET (Secretary of State):

Mr. Speaker, yesterday the hon. member for St. Lawrence-St. George (Mr. Cahan) asked the Prime Minister (Mr. Mackenzie King) to lay on the table copy of an agreement respecting copyright entered into between Canada and the United States in December, 1923. I may say in reply that the extract from the Canada Gazette of December 29, 1923, reproducing the order made by the Minister of Trade and Commerce of Canada, in whose department copyright and patents then were, under subsection 2 of section 4 of the Copyright Act of 1921 is published as an appendix to the report of the commissioner of patents for the fiscal year ended March 31, 1924.

The proclamation issued by the President of the United States under date of December 27, 1923, is also published as an appendix to the same report. That report was laid on the table of the House of Commons on February 9, 1925.

It will be observed that the arrangement between the government of Canada and the government of the United States was not the subject of a treaty or agreement expressed in a formal document, but was effected by action, under statutory authority, by the Minister of Trade and Commerce of Canada and by the President of the United States.

For the convenience of the hon. gentleman and other members of the house I now beg to lay on the table three copies of that agreement.
