Slideluck Vancouver IV- 5 days away!

Slideluck Vancouver lV is only 5 days away on Friday the 28th. The organizing committee and the artists are all looking forward to meeting and sharing their art, food and community spirit with everyone.

The show features the jury selection of artists from around the world; Brazil, Belgium, Italy, Iran, Jordan, Mongolia, Russia, Spain, United States and of course, Canada. The imagery interprets the theme of “Influence” in so many diverse ways that each new presentation is a tangent from the last and takes you on journey into something or somewhere else.

How are we influenced by architecture or modern culture? What makes us react to art around us or the natural world that we are part of? How did political will shape the landscape or influence our point of view? Does service to your country shape your viewpoint. Can sexual desire or cultural stereotype affect your perception of an image?

Each artist has made a statement with their work and we are privileged to be able to share them with you on Friday. Our mandate is building community through art and food and Slideluck is a very causal chance for the you and the artists to discuss what influences them while enjoying the work of others and sharing a meal together.

On behalf of our team I hope you will join us on Friday to see great art, enjoy good food and make new friends!

In the search to make CAPIC relevant, vibrant and viable as a professional organization over the past few months the CAPIC board has reached out to some emerging photographers and students at the local colleges/universities. Here is some input into what they see as will make CAPIC a more valuable organization.

1. Getting Work:

– Consistently be introducing members to potential employers (portfolio reviews, speaking events, office tours, etc).

– Gallery and agency/design house tours

– Leadership opportunities

-Participation in CAPIC, as a school liaison will help build future networks

2. Exclusive Learning Opportunities:

– Workshops, webinars, speaking events, assisting opportunities

– Mentorship program. Perhaps every member is paired with a mentor whose job it is to help the member succeed and get more value from CAPIC

3. Discounts on useful things:

– Always be bringing in new discounts to keep members happy.

– Talk to various rental houses about a small gift certificate for every new member?

– There are many discounts we have in place through the National office so adding locally is even more beneficial to members

4. Socializing

– Being a solo-artist can be lonely. We all need community. We are trying to add opportunities that get members and potential members together in a social environments and help build peer networks

We’ve already started:                                                                                                                           -A new website has been created

-A new blog to share information and soon members work

-Active Social Media Channels

-We had guest illustrator Ola Volo speak about her work to members and to the Capilano  University IDEA Student members.

-The AGM with guest speaker Corwin Heibert

-Photography exhibit for members only for the Capture Festival

-How Image Affect Us: A panel of 12 incredible photographers sharing their stories                 

Please come to the AGM, and share your vision for CAPIC. If you want to join we could use some help on the board or even and occasional volunteer.  We could use your input into what sorts of things you would like to see in Capic!

· (b) the later of the day on which this Order is published in the Canada Gazette, PartⅡ, and the day on which the WIPO Copyright Treaty, adopted in Geneva on December 20, 1996, comes into force for Canada as the day on which subsection 2(1) and section 5 of the Act come into force; and

· (c) the later of the day on which this Order is published in the Canada Gazette, PartⅡ, and the day on which the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty, adopted in Geneva on December 20, 1996, comes into force for Canada as the day on which subsections 9(3) and (4), 11(2), (4) and (5) and 12(2), section 14, subsections 15(2) and (4) and sections 16 and 50 of the Act come into force.

EXPLANATORY NOTE
(This note is not part of the Order.)

Proposal
This Order fixes various dates as the dates on which various provisions of the Copyright Modernization Act (the Act) come into force.
Pursuant to section 63 of the Act, the Governor in Council fixes
· (a) the day on which this Order is published in the Canada Gazette, Part Ⅱ, as the day on which section 1, subsection 2(2), sections 3, 4, and 6 to 8, subsections 9(1) and 9(2), section 10, subsections 11(1), 11(3), 12(1) and 12(3), section 13, subsection 15(1), 15(3), 15(5) and sections 17 to 46, 47 [other than sections 41.25 and 41.26 and subsection 41.27(3) of the Copyright Act, as enacted by that section], 48, 49, and 51 to 62 of the Act come into force;

· (b) the day on which the World Intellectual Property Organization Copyright Treaty (WCT) comes into force for Canada as the day on which subsection 2(1) and section 5 of the Act come into force; and,

· (c) the day on which the World Intellectual Property Organization Performances and Phonograms Treaty (WPPT) comes into force for Canada as the day on which subsections 9(3), 9(4), 11(2), 11(4), 11(5) and 12(2), section 14, subsections 15(2) and 15(4) and sections 16 and 50 of the Act come into force.

Objective
Recognizing the critical role a modern copyright regime plays in Canada’s digital economy, the Act balances the needs of creators and users and ensures that Canada’s copyright laws are modern, flexible, and in line with current international standards.

Background
The Act received Royal Assent on June 29, 2012, and amends the Copyright Act. Among other things, these amendments provide Canadian copyright owners with updated rights and protections to better address the challenges and opportunities of the Internet, so as to be in line with international standards; clarify Internet service providers’ liability and make the enabling of online copyright infringement itself an infringement of copyright; permit businesses, educators and libraries to make greater use of copyright material in digital form; allow educators and students to make greater use of copyright material; permit certain uses of copyright material by consumers; give photographers the same rights as other creators; ensure that the Copyright Act remains technologically neutral; and mandate a parliamentary review of the Copyright Act every five years.
Those sections and subsections fixed to come into force on the day on which the WCT comes into force for Canada ensure that certain copyright protections are extended to WCT member countries. This date is tied to the completion of a ratification process, which would be required in order for the WCT to come into force for Canada.

Those sections and subsections fixed to come into force on the day on which the WPPT comes into force for Canada extend certain copyright protections to WPPT member countries. This date is tied to the completion of a ratification process, which would be required in order for the WPPT to come into force for Canada.

To implement the notice and notice regime in a balanced, effective, and efficient manner, a delay is necessary in order to consider a regulatory process. Consequently, the coming-into-force date of provisions related to the notice and notice regime (specifically subsection 47 [41.25, 41.26, and 41.27(3)]), will be determined through a separate order-in-council process.

Financial implications
There are no financial implications to the Government associated with this Order.

Consultation
As part of the copyright modernization process, extensive national consultations were undertaken in 2009. More than 8 000 written submissions were received, and approximately 1 000 individuals and organizations participated in live events held across the country.

Additionally, the Act was considered by two legislative committees and the Standing Senate Committee on Banking, Trade and Commerce. Stakeholders appeared before each of these committees to give testimony on this legislation and its anticipated impact.

The Act reflects the input of thousands of Canadians, businesses and organizations, and balances the needs of creators and users.
