Mr. Bradley:

I do not know that there is anything to prevent a Canadian composer from copyrighting his production now.

Then there was a further question and Mr. Bradley then replied as follows:

Mr. Bradley:

As a matter of fact copyright exists without registration, and I do not understand why the particular case to which my hon. friend refers cannot be straightened out.

Then tne non. memDer ior Hamilton West who had been questioning him said this:

This is not a particular case. I have been all through it, and I tried very hard to get Canadian coyright for an original composition. You just cannot get it in Canada.

I now come back to where I started. I want to ask the minister if he will just explain briefly the procedure which is followed. I have been reading the Copyright Act. I take it that there must be some procedure necessary-it is quite clear from the act that there is-but what I am not clear about it is just exactly what evidence is given by the department to the composer on the strength of which he is evidently able, according to the terms of the act, to seek legal remedies if his right is infringed. I repeat my question. I am asking for guidance as to the procedure which needs to be followed and as to the document or whatever it is which is obtained by the grantee for use in evidencing his rights.

I would not undertake to prophesy that, but I am hopeful that we may get it into operation on January 1.

Mr. Bradley:

Yes, the duties of the branch will be substantially increased, and we are taking that into account. A few moments ago I pointed out that we could not expect to get the new act into operation before January 1, because, it must be kept in mind, while we now have the act, there are regulations to be prepared. These will be substantial, as my hon. friend understands. I expect that we will call in the gentlemen who so kindly acted on the original committee to help us out in that respect as well.
