Meeting with Dr. Colin Carrie, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Industry

I met this morning with Dr. Colin Carrie (Oshawa), Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Industry. We had a conversation for a little over a half hour, and then he was scheduled to be preparing for question period. He was very interested in what was being discussed, and said that he wanted to meet with me again in the future.

Counterfeiting and Piracy are theft (NOT!)

As parliament was being recessed for the summer, James Rajotte stood up as the Chair of the Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology to table their latest report very embarrassingly titled Counterfeiting and Piracy are theft. See Michael Geist's article Industry Committee Demands a Canadian DMCA.

While I am obviously going to send a copy of my article Jefferson Debate: A Godwin's law for copyright discussions to each member, we clearly have a lot of work ahead of us to educate members of parliament on the basics of these issues. If you are in (or live near) the riding of any of these MPs, please make sure you set up a meeting in their constituency office this summer!
