Mr. DOHERTY:

Exactly. He may find himself to-day with a book written ten or

fifteen years ago, and if that work were to continue in circulation, he might find that apparently he was teaching doctrines which the whole scientific world had discovered to be erroneous, and which, under the circumstances, he certainly would not endorse. I propose to strengthen the position of the author by adding a clause which might be added to subsection 12, providing that nothing in the section shall authorize the granting, without the consent of the author, of a license to publish any succeeding edition of a work whereof such author has published one or more editions in Canada.
