Slyck: CMCC views clash with CRIA views on Copyright

Drew Wilson of Slyck offers a good summary of "where we are now" with Copyright revision. While a copyright bill being tabled by the Conservatives in the near future is unlikely, it would have been interesting to read it to see if the Conservatives have noticed the growing number of actual creator groups (rather than industry associations representing intermediary business executives) have come out against anti-circumvention laws.

The longer Canada delays revision, the more politicians and other policy makers will be forced to realize that the backward-facing thinking that came out of the early 1990's on copyright (if new technology can be abused by private citizens to infringe copyright, then private citizens couldn't be allowed the ability to control this technology) need to be rejected.
