2. The Compleat Canadian Copyright Act, 1921 to 1997 plus Annual Updates
Current, Past & Proposed Provisions of the Act, October 31, 1998

At present the Canadian Copyright Act does not exist in one single piece of legislation but rather in the Revised Statutes of Canada 1985 plus 14 separate sets of amendments including Bill C-32 1997 (as passed).  Compiler Press' "Compleat Canadian Copyright' integrates all these statutory instruments in one place in a standard format including a complete index.  Furthermore, no other reference work offers the complete history of each section of the Act from 1921 to the present, including proposed amendments which were not, or have yet to be, adopted.
