This page is intended to be a launching point for people to learn about the Copyright Bill C-61 tabled by the Conservative Government on June 12, 2008.
There is quite a bit of misinformation about the contents of the bill, including from the Conservative government itself. The most important thing we can do is to try to learn the actual contents and meaning of the bill, and then to open a wide dialog with as many Canadians as possible. An important person to talk to is your neighbours, including your elected member of parliament and the potential candidates in the next election (and related riding associations). Write letters to the editor of local papers, and become someone known for being informed on the bill.
The "Activities" listed in the right side of this page are still current. We have 2 petitions, and a few sample letters you can use to write to your MP.
The Bill C-61 BLOG will be useful for learning what others are saying about the bill. You may also wish to become a contributor to this site, or to inform me when you write on your own site so I can link to you.
I will soon provide a list of other sites to look at, but please start with the "Other key sites" on the right side of this page.
