Calling all Canadians · Ra­dio guy Tod Maf­fin just wrote up an im­pend­ing re­draft of Cana­di­an copy­right law. If this turns in­to a fu­tile at­tempt to shore up failed busi­ness mod­els by forc­ing the de­vel­op­ment of user-unfriendly tech­nol­o­gy, I’m not go­ing to take it ly­ing down. Other places to look are Michael Geist’s site and the Cana­di­an In­ter­net Pol­i­cy and Public In­ter­est Clin­ic, which he found­ed. Cana­di­an­s, please take note and get in the loop. With a mi­nor­i­ty gov­ern­ment in Ot­tawa, we may even get some lever­age. [Up­date: If you read Michael Geist’s cov­er­age, it ap­pears that the pro­posed leg­is­la­tion is a lot less bad than it might have been. We should still be vig­i­lan­t, be­cause the oth­er side will be try­ing to tilt the ta­ble their way.] [Up­date: Ray­mond Lutz wrote me to point out Dig­i­tal Copy­right Cana­da, an­oth­er ad­vo­ca­cy site.]
