Can't afford the Copyright Cartel's big banquet? Join Online Rights Canada for a Balanced Meal instead!

Public interest group Online Rights Canada is hosting a Balanced Meal event to coincide with the big-money/big-copyright/big-media lobbiests event for Sam Bulte.

If politicians take tens of thousands of dollars from the industries they regulate, are independent artists, educators, librarians and the general public really going to get a fair shake?

Alexander T. Bussmann (Etobicoke-North, Progressive Canadian Candidate) replies

Hello Russell,

I am in full agreement with what I have read here. It is very important for government to protect citizens rights. We should in no way be stifling the ability of independent authors from being able to distribute their content as they see fit. We must also not give third parties intrusive rights to tamper, or invade the privacy of the individual. Media piracy is wrong and does constitute stealing and just because of the technological challenges to securing the media make full protection impossible doesn't mean that we should implement archaic, or totalitarian laws to protect it.
