The 57 Ridings that can Change Election's Outcome

Hill Times journalists Abbas Rana, Simon Doyle and Harris MacLeod have assembled a list of 57 ridings in British Columbia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec, where the parties won or lost by a margin of about five per cent or less in the last federal election. This is a superset of what Michael Geist called the Copyright MPs which won their riding by 10 percent or less in the last election and their riding is home to a university.

Received from Neeraj Jain:

Music File-sharing:

;:File sharing itself should not be illegal. However, copyrights infringement should be. That includes duplicating copyrighted works without payment.

Educational Use of Internet Materials:

;:Any non-copyrighted material or material expressly allowed to be duplicated should be usable by all.

ISP Liability for copyright infringement:

;:ISPs should not be responsible for copyright infringement. This would be like holding a phone company responsible for illegal business conducted over the telephone!

Open Source Software:

;:I think the government should do what it can to cut costs while continuing to set a good example to all citizens. If open source software is less expensive and encourages the development of smaller more entrpreneurial business, then I think it would be a good thing.
