To me, that's key. Regardless of their intent right now, if they see thousands
(or hundred's of thousands) of voters saying how important copyright is to them,
and how they want it changed, that has to influence them. We saw what happened
with C-61 where they were surprised by the public's interest and went away and
revised the bill. Ultimately, they're politicians and we're voters....

It's also an opportunity to get our message to the civil servants who actually draft
the bills.
