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.]
