Theres nothing more pathetic that a a sore bunch of losers who like small children have a drama meltdown when they cannot get their own wayhttp://www.zeropaid.com/news/88727/ccer-refutes-lawyers-opinion-on-canadian-copyright-consultation/
A lawyer who is affiliated with the Canadian Intellectual Property Council which supported Bill C-61 has issued an opinion that the consultation was a “failure”. Among his arguments were that Canadians didn’t understand the issue and, therefore, do not have a legitimate opinion on the issue.
In a democratic society, all people should have a right to an opinion – that’s the point of democracy. An open consultation like that of the copyright consultation is an excellent way to extend peoples democratic voice. Not everyone has a doctorate in science, does that mean that those without that degree can’t argue that a radioactive leak in their water supply is objectionable? Not everyone is a doctor in Canada, does that mean that those who aren’t a doctor are not permitted to be a part of the abortion debate? Not everyone is a lawyer, does that mean only lawyers should have a say on changes to criminal law? Well, not everyone has a degree in law, does that suddenly mean those who don’t have a law degree are unable to have a voice in the copyright debate? No.
It seems to be the case that when the public speak their mind corporate monopolist lackies go running scared back to their paymasters who then try to purchase some well know gun for hire to endorse any event to their flavour and it seems this lawyer is doing just that, I wonder what else he will endorse for extra revenue ?
