Petition for Users' Rights in Canadian Copyright: 2 years and 2400+ signatures later

Today marks the 2-year anniversary of the launch of the Petition for Users' Rights in Canadian Copyright. Users' Rights includes not only the rights of audiences of creative works of the minds, but also the next generation of creators who always build upon the past.

We have two packages of signatures that are being prepared to be tabled in the new parliament, and we are always looking for more signatures to be tabled by more members of parliament.

502 signatures were dropped off at Edmonton--Leguc MP James Rajotte's parliamentary office on October 27, 2005. His assistant confirmed on April 5 that they have the signatures and had forwarded them to the Private Members office for confirmation, and will hopefully be ready to be tabled in parliament soon.

200 signatures dropped off at Timmins--James Bay MP Charlie Angus' parliamentary office on October 27, 2005.
