Creative licence vs copyright law

An article by Canadian artist Kimberly Baker discusses problems with Bill C-47. While I don't believe that Bill C-47 made her art illegal, it does point to a generic problem with these laws which is that while they govern the every-day activities of everyone, they are not clear or even seem reasonable to those that must follow them. The first priority for any legal reform in this area, whether it be copyright, patent, trademark, or specialized laws like C-47 is that they be "clarified and simplified". If these laws can't be made clear to laypersons, then maybe they shouldn't be enforced against laypersons with all these laws only applying to industrial for-profit activities.
