Bannermans's Struggle for Canadian Copyright available from UBC Press in paperback.

From UBC Press, released in hardcover in February, available in paperback in July 2013 is McMaster historian Sara Bannerman's
The Struggle for Canadian Copyright
Imperialism to Internationalism, 1842-1971.

The publisher says:

First signed in 1886, the Berne Convention for the 
Protection of Literary and Artistic Works is still
the cornerstone of international copyright law.
Set against the backdrop of Canada’s development
from a British colony into a middle power, this
book reveals the deep roots of conflict in the
international copyright system and argues
that Canada’s signing of the convention can be
viewed in the context of a former British colony’s
efforts to find a place on the world stage. In this
groundbreaking book, Sara Bannerman examines
Canada’s struggle for copyright sovereignty and
explores some of the problems rooted in imperial
and international copyright that affect Canadians
to this day
