Casey Chisick Featured in the Financial Post Discussing Bill C-11, the Copyright Modernization Act
Casey Chisick, partner in the Intellectual Property group at Cassels Brock and a Chambers Global ranked practitioner, is featured in the Financial Post’s article Chambers: Copyright Lawyers Prepare for New Rules, discussing his views on Bill C-11, the Copyright Modernization Act.
