Canadian Copyright Consultation Launches
« on: July 22, 2009, 03:35:14 am »
“Over the coming weeks,” the governments online consultation says, “the Government of Canada will be hosting a nationwide consultation on copyright modernization.”

Michael Geist notes that there will be two town hall meetings for Canadians to let their voices be heard, on in Montreal, the other in Toronto. According to the calender, there will also be 4 invitation only round tables, one of which has already happened.

Canadians who are unable to make their voices heard at the two town hall meetings have an opportunity to submit their comments online.

While average Canadians are going to finally get their voices heard, the copyright industry has been lobbying, often making copyright the most lobbied topic in the government, continually for years. Culture Minister critic Charlie Angus in 2007 commented, “during one of the first meetings I had on copyright a lobbyist informed me that the Internet was little more than a “highway of stolen goods and child pornography that goes into the bedroom of every kid in this country.”

This should be interesting.

At least for a little while until it becomes a brothel where everyone wants a voice but no one is really heard.
Downloading is an addiction I do not want to give up.
