The Continuing Adventures of Captain Copyright

Access Copyright, a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection of intellectual property, has created a cartoon character called Captain Copyright (http://www.captaincopyright.ca/) which appears to have been borrowed from an already existing concept in Singapore (http://patpot.com/projpot/?p=10). Did they get it under license? Michael Geist discusses this and other issues in “The Continuing Adventures of Captain Copyright”.

Last year, the Singapore Intellectual Property Office conducted an IP awareness road show. The star of the show? Captain Copyright, featured in four cartoon shorts warning against copying music, making multiple photocopies, and warning ominously of a world without copyright. If the last cartoon sounds familiar, it might be because that is the same approach used in Access Copyright’s Captain Copyright’s grade one lesson.
