I just picked up a nice little book on Canadian Copyright Law which
gives quite a good overview of the principles behind the law, some
applications of the law, a comparison of the US and Canadian Laws (both
how they differ and how they interact) and several appendices which
includes the text of the Canadian Copy Right Law and The Copyright Rules
and the text of the Rome Copyright Convention 1928 (this is what we call
the Berne Convention since its really an amended version of the Berne
Copyright Convention 1886).  The US finally signed the Berne Convention
1989 and in the chapter comparing the US and Canadian Laws there is
an interesting explanation of the changes in copyright status of material
produced prior to 1 January 1978, between 1 January 1978 and 28 February
1989, and after 1 March 1989.
