    If work is copyrighted with the U.S Copyright Office and not registered with the Canadian intellectual property office and the work is placed on a Canadian hosted website (.com domain registered in Canada) is there possibilities of legal trouble?

    I am under the impression that Canada never accepted the Digital Millennium Copyright Act however is part of WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) whatever that is......

    Soo can a Canadian company place U.S copyrighted work on a Canadian hosted site without repercussions?

    (note: the site is generating money with the help of a U.S company)

    Thanks

    "The World Intellectual Property Organization does not offer a registration service for copyright because a created work is protected by copyright as soon as it exists but it does acknowledge that many countries have national registration systems in place and that for some countries, this serves as prima facie evidence in a court of law as to copyright ownership"

    Sound like these guys do nothing and if someone wanted to sue they would have to register for copyright in C2 the Anada then in order to send their claim.

    However i think in the future i will invest more time in getting original content maybe that will help me sleep......


    thanks for the input guys
