Canada. Dept. of Communications. Copyright Division : In 1980-81, the Department of Communications (DOC) received the arts and culture program from the Department of the Secretary of State. The Copyright Division (DCT) developed from the role of a former Special Advisor of the predecessor's Cultural Affairs Sector. The division was responsible for the development of copyright policy and revision of copyright law, including protection for artists, creators, and the industries engaged in the production and distribution of cultural products. DCT worked closely with elements of the Department of Consumer and Corporate Affairs (CCA) which administered the Copyright Act. In 1984-85, responsibilities for amendments to the Copyright Act were transferred from CCA to DOC. This expanded the division's role in the ultimate revision of the Copyright Act (Bill C-60, receiving Royal Assent June 8, 1988). Under DOC, the Copyright Division was part of the Cultural Affairs Sector (later Cultural Affairs and Broadcasting Sector). After a 1990-91 departmental reorganization, it became part of the Communications Policy Sector. When DOC was dismantled in 1994, responsibilities related to copyright policy development and legislative amendments were transferred to the newly-created Department of Canadian Heritage.
