Simcoe North MP Bruce Stanton on C-11

Copied from a post to the Fair Copyright for Canada Facebook group.



Good Afternoon Samuel:

Thank you for your recent correspondence on the Bill C-11, the Copyright Modernization Act. I appreciate your comments and concerns and welcome the opportunity to respond.

Bill C-11, The Copyright Modernization Act, is an effort to modernize Canada's copyright laws and align them with international standards on the use and sharing of creative material. Once implemented, the Bill will promote innovation and creativity in Canada's arts community. It is an attempt to ensure Canada can compete in the digital economy.

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.

CIPPIC replies: Simcoe North Liberal candidate

;:To: Philippa Lawson, Executive Director, CIPPIC

;:From: Paul DeVillers, Liberal candidate, Simcoe North

;:Date: June 22, 2004

;:RE: your questionnaire on law and technology issues

;:Thank you for your efforts to survey parties and candidates about these issues. I must admit, however, that my personal experience has not given me much expertise in regard to these issues. However, I will do my best to clarify my position on each question.

;:1. re Music File-sharing

;:I understand that arguments can be made on both sides of this issue. However, given the need to protect the rights of those who create music and/or who produce it, I feel the law must attempt to prevent the wholesale copying of materials-especially when that copying can be shown to cut into the proceeds from sales.
