Canadian Government Asks Citizens About New Copyright Law… Tell Them It Sucks


Here’s something different. The Canadian government is consulting the public before drafting a new copyright bill. They have launched a website (which is currently Slashdotted as I type this) designed to provide a public forum for discussion. I guess the reaction from the last time they tried to draft such a bill made them consider a different approach. In any case, before you think that the Canadian government is doing something good you might want to consider the this. Just because they’re soliciting feedback doesn’t mean they’ll listen to it. More than likely, they’ll cherry pick public responses that support what they were going to do anyway. Then claim that they have “public support”. But I suppose it can’t hurt to make your voice heard. Check it out and tell the Canadian government that US style copyright laws suck and have no place in Canada
